Researchers at Istanbul Technical University Report New Data on Physics Research (Discrete nature of thermodynamics in confined ideal Fermi gases)

September 2, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Current study results on Physics Research have been published. According to news reporting originating in Istanbul, Turkey, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Intrinsic discrete nature in thermodynamic properties of Fermi gases appears under strongly confined and degenerate conditions. For a rectangular confinement domain, thermodynamic properties of an ideal Fermi gas are expressed in their exact summation forms."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Istanbul Technical University, "For 1D, 2D and 3D nano domains, variations of both number of particles and internal energy per particle with chemical potential are examined. It is shown that their relation with chemical potential exhibits a discrete nature which allows them to take only some definite values. Furthermore, quasi-irregular oscillatory-like sharp peaks are observed in heat capacity."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "New nano devices can be developed based on these behaviors."
