Structural and electronic properties of bare and hydrogenated silicon clusters

2001-02-01
We have investigated the structural and electronic properties of both bare and hydrogenated Si-m (m = 5,17, 29, 35,47) clusters using density functional theory. It has been found that the total binding energy decreases as the cluster size increases for both bare and hydrogenated silicon clusters. Moreover, optimization contracts the clusters: optimized geometry of bare clusters is quite different from those of hydrogenated clusters. The electronic structure calculations give the size-dependent band gap for the hydrogenated silicon clusters and the band gap increases as the cluster size decreases.

The structural and electronic properties of isolated neutral Zn Cd-n clusters for m+n <= 3 have been investigated by performing density functional theory calculations at B3LYP level. The optimum geometries, vibrational frequencies, electronic structures, and the possible dissosiation channels of the clusters considered have been obtained.

Pekoz, Rengin; Erkoç, Şakir (2018-01-30)
The structural and electronic properties of neutral ternary PbxSbySez clusters (x y + z = 2, 3) in their ground states have been explored by means of density functional theory calculations. The geometric structures and binding energies are systematically explored and for the most stable configurations of each cluster type vibrational frequencies, charges on atoms, energy difference between highest occupied and lowest unoccupied molecular orbitals, and the possible dissociations channels have been analyzed. ...
Structure and stability of GenCm-n clusters
Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (2003-07-04)
Density functional theory method has been used to predict the structural and energetic properties of GenCm-n (n = l,m = 3-14; n = 2,m = 4-15) isomers. The optimized stable structures have been found to be linear(chain) for all GenCm-n(n = I, m = 3-9; n = 2, m = 4-10) clusters and planar(ring) for all GenCm-1 (n = 1,m = 10-14; n = 2, m = 11-15) isomers. It has been also found that the GenCm-n (n = 1, m = 3-14; n = 2, m = 4-15) clusters with odd m are more stable than those with even m.
