Charge localization in collision-induced multiple ionization of van der Waals clusters with highly charged ions



Charge localization in collision-induced multiple ionization of van der Waals clusters with highly charged ions



Physical Review Letters 88(14): 143401



Charge localization in multiple ionization and fragmentation of small argon clusters is reported. The processes are initiated by interaction of the neutral cluster with highly charged Xe(q+) (5< or =q< or =25). Products are detected by means of multicoincidence time-of-flight methods. A strong dependence of the fragmentation pattern on the Xe charge state q is observed. In particular, we find evidence for formation of multiply charged atomic Ar(r+) fragment ions up to r = 7. Such high charge states have neither been observed in fission of multiply charged van der Waals clusters nor in ion-induced fragmentation of fullerenes or metal clusters. This hints at fundamentally different excitation and fragmentation dynamics.
