We introduce a simple analytical model in order to find the energy spectrum of ellipsoidal samples. For this purpose, the perturbation theory is applied. The eigenvalues of the energy are of the size and shape dependent form, which leads to the dependence of the samples properties.
In particular, the Fermi energy is discussed in the context of the deformation of single nanoparticle from spherical shape and their ensemble.
Journal for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (JNN) is an international and multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal with a wide-ranging coverage, consolidating research activities in all areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology into a single and unique reference source. JNN is the first cross-disciplinary journal to publish original full research articles, rapid communications of important new scientific and technological findings, timely state-of-the-art reviews with author's photo and short biography, and current research news encompassing the fundamental and applied research in all disciplines of science, engineering and medicine.
