Abstract: The dynamical structure factor of nano plasmas in strongly excited clusters was investigated via classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. It was generalized via introduction of the bilocal current density correlation function for clusters of different sizes. Several excitation modes were found and characterized, solving an eigenvalue problem and their dispersion with dependence on temperature, density and cluster size was discussed. The generalization of the dynamical structure factor concept going from bulk to finite plasmas was shown.
