Study of one dimensional position dependent effective mass problem in some quantum mechanical systems

Bucurgat, Mahmut
The one dimensional position dependent effective mass problem is studied by solving the Schrödinger equation for some well known potentials, such as the deformed Hulthen, the Mie, the Kratzer, the pseudoharmonic, and the Morse potentials. Nikiforov-Uvarov method is used in the calculations to get energy eigenvalues and the corresponding wave functions exactly. By introducing a free parameter in the transformation of the wave function, the position dependent effective mass problem is reduced to the solution of the Schrödinger equation for the constant mass case. At the same time, the deformed Hulthen potential is solved for the position dependent effective mass case by applying the method directly. The Morse potential is also solved for a mass distribution function, such that the solution can be reduced to the constant mass case.


Exact Pseudospin Symmetric Solution of the Dirac Equation for Pseudoharmonic Potential in the Presence of Tensor Potential
AYDOĞDU, OKTAY; Sever, Ramazan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-04-01)
Under the pseudospin symmetry, we obtain exact solution of the Dirac equation for the pseudoharmonic potential in the presence of the tensor potential with arbitrary spin-orbit coupling quantum number kappa. The energy eigenvalue equation of the Dirac particles is found and the corresponding radial wave functions are presented in terms of confluent hypergeometric functions. We investigate the tensor potential dependence of the energy of the each state in the pseudospin doublet. It is shown that degeneracy b...
Exact Solutions of Effective-Mass Dirac-Pauli Equation with an Electromagnetic Field
Arda, Altug; Sever, Ramazan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-01-01)
The exact bound state solutions of the Dirac-Pauli equation are studied for an appropriate position-dependent mass function by using the Nikiforov-Uvarov method. For a central electric field having a shifted inverse linear term, all two kinds of solutions for bound states are obtained in closed forms.

Özdemir Kart, Sevgi; Tomak, Mehmet; Department of Physics (2004)
The Sutton Chen and quantum Sutton Chen potentials are used in molecular dynamics simulations to describe the structural, thermodynamical, and transport properties of Pd, Ni and their binary alloys in solid, liquid, and glass phases. Static properties including elastic constants, pair distribution function, static structure factor, and dynamical properties consisting of phonon dispersion relation, diffusion coefficient, and viscosity are computed at various temperatures. The melting temperatures for Pd-Ni s...
The Dirac-Yukawa problem in view of pseudospin symmetry
AYDOĞDU, OKTAY; Sever, Ramazan (IOP Publishing, 2011-08-01)
An approximate analytical solution of the Dirac equation for the Yukawa potential under the pseudospin symmetry condition is obtained using the asymptotic iteration method. We discover the energy eigenvalue equation and some of the numerical results are listed. Wave functions are obtained in terms of hypergeometric functions. Extra degeneracies are removed by adding a new term, A/r(2), to the Yukawa potential. The effects of tensor interaction on the two states in the pseudospin doublet are also investigated.
Exact supersymmetric solution of Schrödinger equation for some potentials
Aktaş, Metin; Sever, Ramazan; Department of Physics (2005)
Exact solution of the Schrödinger equation with some potentials is obtained. The normal and supersymmetric cases are considered. Deformed ring-shaped potential is solved in the parabolic and spherical coordinates. By taking appropriate values for the parameter q, similar results are obtained for Hulthén and exponential type screened potentials. Similarly, Morse, Pöschl-Teller and Hulthén potentials are solved for the supersymmetric case. Supersymmetric solution of PT-/non-PT-symmetric and non-Hermitian Mors...
