Cluster comparison

Cluster comparison

Shown (top to bottom) are the structures of platinum 9, platinum 10 and platinum 13 determined through first-principles electronic structure optimization. Dark blue spheres represent platinum atoms, magnesium atoms are in green and oxygen atoms in red. The light blue surfaces represent the excess electronic charge donated to the platinum clusters from the underlying magnesia surface. (Credit: Uzi Landman, Georgia Tech)
