Fabrication of artificial atomic clusters and chains facilitates the observation and investigation of various quantum effects. The size and geometry of such assemblies influence electrostatic potentials, catalytic efficiency as well as a magnetic response. Here, we investigate the electrostatic properties of differently sized and shaped Ag clusters which have been created on a Ag(111) substrate by atomic manipulation with a scanning probe microscope (SPM). We use scanning quantum dot microscopy (SQDM) [1,2] with a single molecule quantum dot attached to the SPM tip [3] to image the surface potential over atomic chains and compact clusters. These potentials originate from the Smoluchowski effect and influence, e.g., the local reactivity. We find that the surface dipole moment per adatom drops rapidly for compact assemblies while it converges to a value of about 0.26 Debye for atoms in a chain.
