Abstract

In sharp contrast to molecules, electronic states of clusters with an excited intermediate-shell electron can efficiently decay via an intermolecular Coulombic mechanism. Explicit examples are presented using large scale ab initio propagator calculations. The mechanism is illustrated and its generality is stressed.
