Studies from Chernivtsi National University in the Area of Condensed Matter Described

May 20, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Investigators discuss new findings in Condensed Matter. According to news originating from Chernovtsy, Ukraine, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "The effect of a magnetic field on the energy spectrum and on the wave functions of an electron in spherical nano-structures such as single quantum dot and spherical layer is investigated. It is shown that the magnetic field removes the spectrum degeneration with respect to the magnetic quantum number."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Chernivtsi National University, "An increasing magnetic field induction entails a monotonous character of electron energy for the states with m>= 0 and a non-monotonous one for the states with m< 0. The electron wave functions of the ground state and several excited states are studied considering the effect of-the magnetic field. It is shown that 1s and 1p states are degenerated in the spherical layer driven by a strong magnetic field."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In the limit case, a series of size-quantized levels produce the Landau levels which are typical of bulk crystals."
