### Abstract

Photoelectron spectroscopy of Na_{n}(CS_{2})^{-} cluster negative ions has been investigated for n=1 and 2. The photoelectron band for the lowest electron binding energy is found to shift to lower energy with increasing n from 0 to 2. This behavior is interpreted, with the results of calculations based on the density functional theory, that the excess electron in these negative cluster ions is predominantly localized on CS_{2}. The corresponding neutral clusters are found to possess ion-pair nature and have structures similar to those of the negative ions.
