Electronic properties of tin (Sn) and lead (Pb) cluster anions were studied using photoelectron spectroscopy (PES) with a magnetic bottle-type electron spectrometer, where the feasibility of a halogen-doping method we recently developed was explored. The binary cluster anions containing a chlorine atom (Cl) were produced by a laser vaporization of a target rod in a He carrier gas mixed with a small amount of CCl4 gas. Comparing the PES of SnnCl- and those of Sn-n, it was found that the doped Cl atom in SnnCl- deprives each Sn-n cluster of the excess electron without any serious rearrangement of the Snn framework, which is similar to our previous work on SinF- and GenF-. The halogen-doping method enables us to reveal the HOMO-LUMO gap of the corresponding neutral cluster of the Snn clusters, showing that the Snn clusters are semiconductor clusters, especially below n=30, similar to the Sin and the Gen clusters. For the Pbn clusters, however, the halogen-doping method was inapplicable, which implies that the Pbn clusters are different from the other group-14 clusters, probably exhibiting a metallic nature.
