Cluster distribution of the iron oxide neutral cluster in the gas phase was detected through 193 nm multiphoton ionization. It was found that neutral cluster fragmentation was present for ionization due to multiphoton absorption in both neutral and ionic clusters. It was observed that clusters were most stable when excess oxygen were of the form of Fe mO m and Fe mO m+1.2. The results show that relative intensities of some features or cluster series may get affected due to framentation of the neutral clusters.
