 Title: VIBRATIONAL SPECTRA AND ENERGETICS OF THE WATER HEPTAMER ANION Creators: Diri, Kadir; Sommerfeld, Thomas; Jordan, K. D.; Roscioli, Joseph R.; Johnson, Mark A. Issue Date: 2007 Publisher: Ohio State University Abstract: In this work we analyze the vibrational spectra of the (H$_2$O)$_7^-$ cluster obtained by the Yale part of the team. The spectrum is interesting due to the appearance of different (H$_2$O)$_7^-$ isomers depending on the number of attached Ar atoms. Parallel tempering Monte Carlo simulations performed using a one-electron model Hamiltonian with Drude oscillators to account for the polarization effects and dispersion interactions} \textbf{2001}, \textit{114}, 10717.} are used to identify low-lying isomers of (H$_2$O)$_7^-$. Selected low-energy isomers are then characterized by means of the all-electron Becke3LYP, MP2, and CCSD(T) methods. We propose an assignment of the observed spectra based on comparison of calculated harmonic spectra and electron binding energies with the corresponding experimental values.
