The spectra of sputtered gold and silver atoms isolated in D/sub 2/, Ne, and N/sub 2/ matrices are reported. An inverse relationship between Z/sub eff/ of the metal atom and ..cap alpha.., the polarizability of the matrix, has been extended to include silver atoms in D/sub 2/ and N/sub 2/ matrices. The correlation breaks down for Ne matrices apparently because the size of a substitutional site and polarizability of neon are such as to cause multiple-site occupation. Evidence for multiple-site occupation of silver in neon is presented. Intense and resolved spectra of silver dimers are also reported, and a correlation with the gas-phase spectra is made.
