Stability and Structure of Clusters
- Conference date: 25–30 September 2007
- Location: Corfu (Greece)
We have investigated the structure and stability of small clusters. The potential energy surface of the system is described using additive potentials and which represent the pair interactions taken from the best available CCSD ab initio calculations. Both potentials have been fitted by Tang and Toennies and Lennard‐Jones (LJ) analytical forms. In addition, the potential energy surface has been explored by the Monte Carlo conjugate gradient method in order to determine the geometry of each cluster and its isomers. Their relative stability was studied by calculating the energy per Krypton atom, the first derivative and the second derivative. It was shown that 8, 9, 10, 12 and 16 correspond to the magic numbers related to the most stable clusters.
