Auger electron spectra and Auger yields of f m argon clusters in the Ar(2p) excitation regime are reported. The Auger yield spectra show characteristic changes as a function of cluster size. The results indicate that the Auger yield signal originates primarily from the surface of the clusters. m e results are compared to bulk-sensitive experimental techniques, such as total electron yields (TEY), zero kinetic energy electron (ZEKE) spectra for variable size clusters, as well as Auger yield spectra of condensed argon multilayers.
