Abstract

We describe the potential energy landscapes of elemental S8, Se8, and Te8 clusters using disconnectivity graphs. Inherent structures include both ring and chain configurations, with rings especially dominant in Se8. We also map the potential energy landscapes of heterogeneous Sen (S,Te) 8-n clusters, which offer insights into the structure of heterogeneous chalcogen glasses.
