The complete fragmentation of highly excited and multi-charged C n q+ clusters (n=5-10; q=2-4), produced in high velocity collisions with atoms, has been measured. Multiplicity distributions were extracted and used to deduce, within a statistical framework, the partitioning of energy between fragment's production and fragment's kinetic energy releases (KER) in these systems . This partitioning was found to scale as the charge over mass ratio q/n of the cluster (figure). It illustrates fordoi:10.1103/physrevlett.104.043401 pmid:20366708 fatcat:fvmhw62ssrfbxpk253bnyevaqi
