Photoelectron Spectroscopy of Mass-Selected Copper-Water Cluster Negative Ions

Received12 Apr 1994


Negative-ion photoelectron spectroscopy has been applied in order to obtain size dependent information about the electronic structure of clusters of metal atoms solvated with polar molecules. In the present paper we have investigated the photoelectron spectra of Cu2-(H2O)n, cluster ions with 2 = 0–4 and also those of Cu2-(H2O)n, with n = 0 and 1. In the spectra of Cu2-(H2O)n, the lowest energy bands were assigned to the electron detachment from the CuOH-(H2O)n1, which were produced in the source together with the above cluster ions. The observed bands for Cu2-(H2O)n were all assigned to the transitions to the states originating in the ground 2S and first excited 2D states of the Cu atom. The stepwise hydration for Cu- and Cu2- was discussed from the observed spectral shifts.
