Larger argon atomic clusters undergo a size-specific transition from rigid to fluid forms as the cluster temperature is varied. The observed nature of this phase change, detected by measurement of the spectral line shape of a benzene dopant molecule, favors the phase-coexistence model of the cluster melting transition.
