Paper Abstract

Sodium clusters were produced in the stainless steel cell containing sodium vapors and helium, with the aid of the laser light resonant with the Na2 particles. The clusters formation was investigated. Data on the cluster size and dynamics were obtained. The theoretical model of clusters evolution based on the thermodynamics of the vapor-liquid transition was developed. The scattering of light on sodium clusters was studied and the theoretical formulas were fitted to the experimental data.
