Density Functional Calculation of the Fragmentation of Neutral, Singly and Doubly-Ionized Spherical Jellium-Like Metallic Microparticles
The fragmentation of neutral and ionized metallic clusters is studied by using the density functional method and the spherical jellium model. The peculiarities of the fragmentation are controlled by the tendency for fragments with a “magic” number of electrons, mainly 2 or 8. We have also obtained that, provided that we consider parent clusters with the same number of electrons, the fragmentations of neutral and ionized clusters are very similar.
