A monolayer of Au55 clusters stabilized by [P(C6H5)3]12Cl6 ligands was investigated at 7 K using a low-temperature ultrahigh vacuum scanning tunneling microscope. The topography of single clusters shows the actual arrangement of the C6H5 rings of ligand molecules. Characteristic charge-quantization phenomena usually obtained for metal particles were observed by current–voltage measurements. Spectroscopic data acquired at different locations within a cluster reveal energy levels with average spacing of 170 meV which can be attributed to the Au55 core. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
