Abstract

Sodium doped silicon clusters (SinNam, 3≤n≤11, 1≤m≤4) were produced by two independent laser vaporization methods and their ionization potentials were measured by scanning the wavelength of the UV dye laser. The IPs of most SinNam clusters decrease monotonously with the number of Na atoms, but IPs of Si7Nam and Si10Nam clusters show an apparent even-odd alternation; odd numbers of Na atoms efficiently decrease the IP but even numbers of Na atoms never significantly decrease the IPs. In addition, the reactivity of SinNam clusters for NO molecules was investigated with a fast flow reactor, and an anti-correlation between IP and the reactivity was clearly observed; clusters having high IP show low reactivity and vice versa.
