Aromatic hydrocarbons provide nucleation centers for the formation of clusters of inert gases in high-flow supersonic beams. Large clusters of Ar, each containing a single tetracene (T) molecule, were prepared by supersonic expansion of the seeded gas at pressures p = 3000-13000 Torr and interrogated by laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy Evidence is reported for homogeneous line broadening of large TArn clusters prepared at p{slanted equal to or greater-than} 8000 Torr.
