Magic clusters double up

Abstract:
Theoretical physicists in Italy and France have discovered a new family of "magic" clusters using computer simulations. The clusters, which consist of a nickel or copper core surrounded by silver atoms, display high levels of structural, thermodynamic and electronic stability. The silver-nickel structures are also magnetic.
