Abstract: Experiments and simulations have been performed to examine the finite-temperature behavior of Ga17 + and Ga20 + clusters. Specific heats and average collision cross sections have been measured as a function of temperature, and the results compared to simulations performed using first principles Density-Functional Molecular-Dynamics. The experimental results show that while Ga17 + apparently undergoes a solid-liquid transition without a significant peak in the specific-heat, Ga20 + melts with a relatively shar…
