Abstract
Evolution of metallic properties of free and initially neutral nanoscale Bi clusters has been studied using synchrotron radiation excited photoelectron spectroscopy. The 4f and 5d core as well as the valence levels have been probed. The cross-level analysis indicates metallic properties in Bi clusters in the observed size range from 0.5 nm to 1.4 nm. The behavior of the core-level and valence binding energies as a function of cluster size has been observed to be smooth and relatively consistent. Valence responses for the largest clusters have their shape and width similar to those of the polycrystalline solid Bi. (C) 2012 American Institute of Physics. [http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4759324]
