Structure-reactivity relation, optical properties and real-time study of ultrafast processes in atomic clusters
The study of the nonscalable properties of clusters in the size regime in which each atom counts have shown that fully new phenomena and striking new unexpected properties of small clusters can emerge. In this work three aspects have been addressed: i) the structural and electronic properties and reactivity of metal clusters, ii) stationary optical propertis and iii) real time investigation and control of ultrafast processes in noble metal and in nonstoichiometric sodium fluoride clusters.
