1.  Calculate the largest diameter a spherical silver nanoparticle can have for there to be no more than

 

109 electron energy states over a 1 eV interval at an energy of 2 eV.

 

2.  Determine the temperature at which a perfect cube of gold (with a volume of 27 nm3) becomes quantum confined (via the metal‐to‐insulator transition).

 

3.  The wave function, (x), of an electron trapped in a potential well with a finite depth and width, L, is given by:


 

(x)   AeCx

(x)   F sin(kxGcos(kx)

(x)   BeCx


 

for x 0 for 0 x L

 

for x  L


 

(a)  Given that F = G = 5, k = 1, and C= 2 plot (using MatLab or another plotting program) the wave function over the range ‐2 ≤ x ≤ L + 2.

 

 

(b)Given that (L) = (0), determine the values of L and B if the wave function corresponds to the third lowest energy state.
