Formation and growth of CsBr clusters embedded in unsupported Ar clusters was studied using synchrotron radiation photoelectron spectroscopy. The development of the core-level electronic structure for cluster sizes between a few and a few hundred atoms contained information about the local coordination of the constituent particles. The experimental results indicate that a gradual structural phase transition from NaCl structure to CsCl structure for CsBr clusters takes place at around 160 atoms per cluster.
