Research Conducted at Technical University Has Provided New Information about Condensed Matter

May 20, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Fresh data on Condensed Matter are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Prague, Czech Republic, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "In earlier works, the electronic structure of the graphitic nanocone for the long distance from the tip was investigated. Here, we investigate the behaviour of the given nanostructure near the tip where in our approach hybridizations of it orbitals need to be included."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Technical University, "In this case, the curvature dependence of it orbital energy has to be included in the model. For this purpose, we use an approximation valid for small values of the corresponding parameters."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "We consider different numbers of the pentagonal defects in the tip."
