Abstract

X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) of size-selected free cerium-oxide cluster ions has been carried out by employing an ion trap. X-ray absorption spectra of Ce2O3 + and Ce2O5 + were obtained in the energy range of the Ce M-edge. The spectra consisted of two prominent peaks corresponding to Ce M5 - and M4 - white line peaks. The photon energies of the peaks showed that the charge state of Ce in Ce2O3 + was comparable with a formal valence number. On the other hand, the estimated charge state of Ce in Ce2O5 + was much smaller than a formal valence number, which was consistently understood by assuming that Ce2O5 + has a Ce2O3-O2 configuration with a molecular O2 adsorbed. It was thus demonstrated that an ion trap facilitates XAS measurement for determining charge states of atoms in a free cluster.
