Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A range of volatile inorganic species have been trapped in a zinc matrix using the process of co-condensation and their UV photoelectron spectra have been recorded. These are seen to correspond to broadened versions of the molecular spectra with ionization energies subject to small polarization shifts. Differences in the ionization energies measured for low doses of condensate and those measured for higher doses are interpreted in terms of isolation of small and large clusters within the zinc matrix.
