    Abstract: Novel properties of nano-scale semiconductors based on the surface and quantum effects have been studied and applications identified. Spherical potential well model is used to study quantum effect whereas basic geometrical models are used for the surface effect. We have shown such effects to be the fundamental factors responsible for the novel nano... Show More

    Abstract: This paper concern the calculation of equilibrium composition of plasma mixture Air-Water vapor and copper vapor in temperatures range 1000K to 20000 K. The plasma is suposed to be in local thermodynamic equilibrium. We used Gibbs free energy minimization method to access the different numerical densities of chemical species as a function of temper... Show More
