Results of a theoretical study of the properties of Sin, Gen, and SinGen clusters are presented. An approximate density-functional method in combination with genetic algorithms have been used in an unbiased determination of the structures of the lowest total energy. The resulting structural, energetic, and electronic properties are analysed and compared with each other for the different systems.
