Collective resonances in the photoresponse of metallic nanoclusters

Abstract

Photoabsorption and photoionization cross sections of spherical sodium clusters are calculated using the density functional method. The core of Na10+ ions are frozen into a jellium sphere and the valence electron cloud is treated by the Kohn-Sham formalism. Two approximations are employed: one that omits the electon correlation and other that incorporates it. The correlation induces an energy up-shift and redistribution of the oscillator strength (OS). The dominant part of this blue-shifted OS builds the surface plasmon below the first ionization threshold, while the remaining part moves above the threshold and produces multiple structures in the ionization continuum.
