Mass spectrometric measurements of clusters containing N helium atoms and an NO molecule yield
probabilities for charge transfer from He to NO that range from 0.8 0.1 for N 540 to
0.02 0.02 for N 15 000. From this we estimate that the He hole hops approximately 70 times
before localization at a He2 core. 1996 American Institute of Physics.

Recently, several research groups have begun to study
the properties of liquid He clusters as a ``solvent'' for atoms
and molecules.112
There are several important motivations
for this work. Since He clusters remain liquidlike down to
their steady state temperature of 0.4 K,4
they provide a
unique environment for studying chemical processes. Al-
though helium clusters provide the least perturbative con-
densed phase environment in the chemical sense, the low
