Measuring and modeling the size and shape dependent electronic structure of diamondoid particles — •Jana Ulrich, Tobias Zimmermann, Robert Richter, Thomas Möller, and Torbjörn Rander — Institut für Optik und Atomare Physik, Hardenbergstr. 36, 10623 Berlin, Deutschland

Diamondoids are a class of sp3-hybridised carbon nano-structures [1]. The first member is adamantane, which can be seen as the smallest possible diamond. Through structural modification of one or more adamantane units, a completely size selectable range of particles can be obtained [2]. We report on the electronic structure of certain such particles, investigated with valence photoelectron spectroscopy. In our studies we were especially interested in the size dependent change of the ionization potential [3]. In large nanoparticles such changes can be described by the quantum confinement theory [4]. As this model was developed for much larger structures (typically 3-50 nm), we explored whether it is applicable to predict the ionization potential of the few-atom samples of different geometries. The basic principles of the modeling and its results in comparison to the experimental data will be presented.
