Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


X-ray absorption measurements at the L-edge in chemically prepared Germanium nanoclusters show a blue shift of the conduction band edge consistent with quantum confinement theory. Additionally the effects of the surface termination on the electronic properties are probed with x-ray absorption processes.
