Li5 as a pseudorotating planar cluster

Academic Article


  • A pseudorotating state of Li5 observed in a recent EPR experiment is investigated using the local density functional method. The calculated isotropic spin population indicates that a planar C2v structure is more consistent with the experimental result than a suggested trigonal bipyramid. A new pseudorotating state based on the planar structure is proposed. © 1994 The American Physical Society.
