Abstract: The fragmentation of multiply charged atomic sodium clusters of mass 200 is investigated using the Micro-canonical Metropolis Monte Carlo (MMMC) statistical technique for excitation energies up to 200 eV and for cluster charges up to +9e. In this work we present caloric curves and charged and uncharged fragment mass distributions for clusters with charges 0, 2, and 4. The caloric curves show a dip at the critical point implying a negative specific heat, as expected for finite systems, while the fragment mass distributions corroborate the picture of a phase transition from one dominant liquid-like cluster to complete vaporization.
