Theoretical Study of Differences between Surface and Bulk Electronic States in Cu Clusters

Abstract:

Article Preview

The size-dependent electronic structures of metal clusters Cun (n=2-20) have been calculated using density functional theory method. The results reveal that their electronic properties are almost the same as bulk material if the cluster size larger than a critical value. The properties can be understood by a surface-noncrystalline-layer model that composed of an interior crystalline-like core and an outer surface noncrystalline layer.
