Abstract: The geometry of cationic silicon clusters doped with vanadium, SinV+ (n = 12-16), is investigated by using infrared multiple photon dissociation of the corresponding rare gas complexes in combination with ab initio calculations. It is shown that the clusters are endohedral cages, and evidence is provided that Si16V+ is a fluxional system with a symmetric Frank-Kasper geometry.
