We have attempted to find the putative global minimum structures of Morse clusters for cluster size N = 81−160 as a function of the range of the potential (with potential range ρ0 ≥ 3.0). Moreover, compared to the results for N ≤ 80 listed in the Cambridge Cluster Database, a number of new putative global minima are given. A structural and conformational analysis of M100 for different ρ0 was given. The sequences of the global minima as a function of ρ0 and N were studied, and the zero temperature “phase diagram” was given for an overall view of how the global minima depend upon N and ρ0.
