Title: One-Electron States of a 2D Spatially Limited System

Abstract

The spectrum of a particle in a 2D potential as a polar-angle-dependent well is investigated. One-electron states of 2D systems are considered within the framework of the simplest quantum-mechanical models. Such states can be realized by dusting the atoms of various substances which are posited on a substrate.

  • Scanning transmission electron microscopy of individual unfixed molecules of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase has been used to determine the molecular mass distribution of the protein. Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase, which has a subunit molecular mass of 77 kilodaltons, was found to exist predominantly as a dimer with an apparent molecular mass of 136 +/- 29 kilodaltons. The mass distribution of the enzyme molecules was unchanged in the presence of the allosteric inhibitor S-adenosylmethionine. Examination of negatively stained protein molecules suggested that each subunit of the dimer consists of two globular domains of approximately equal size. Limited proteolysis of the enzyme by trypsin gave resultsmore » which were entirely consistent with that view. In the presence of 1% trypsin, the enzyme was cleaved into two fragments. The masses of these fragments were 39 and 36 kilodaltons as assessed by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate. Tryptic cleavage did not lead to loss of NADPH-menadione or NADPH-methylenetetrahydrofolate oxidoreductase activity, and the flavin prosthetic group remained bound to the protein. However, the cleaved protein was completely desensitized with respect to inhibition by S-adenosylmethionine. These results suggest that each subunit of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase contains two domains and that allosteric inhibition requires specific interactions between these domains. The region between these two domains appears to be very sensitive to proteolysis, while the domains themselves are relatively resistant to further degradation. 14 references, 3 figures.« less
  • Ion acoustic drift solitary wave with intermediate parametric range in both linear and nonlinear regimes has been studied in electron-positron-ion magnetoplasma. In the spatially limited region dispersion relation in the linear and Zakharov-Kuznetsov-type equation in the nonlinear regime are derived, respectively. Both equations show the coupling of electrostatic drift and ion acoustic waves. The stationary soliton solution for oblique drift solitary waves with the effect of positron concentration and temperature has been discussed analytically and graphically. The results are relevant for astrophysical observations and diagnostics of laboratory electron-positron-ion magnetoplasmas.
  • Two-dimensional (2D) interfaces between crystalline materials have been shown to generate unusual interfacial electronic states in complex oxides1-4. Recently, a onedimensional (1D) polar-on-nonpolar interface has been realized in hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) and graphene heterostructures 5-10, where a coherent 1D boundary is expected to possess peculiar electronic states dictated by edge states of graphene and the polarity of hBN 11-13. Here we present a combined scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and firstprinciples theory study of the graphene-hBN boundary to provide a rare glimpse into the spatial and energetic distributions of the 1D boundary states in real-space. The interfaces studied here aremore » crystallographically coherent with sharp transitions from graphene zigzag edges to B (or N) terminated hBN atomic layers on a Cu foil substrate5. The revealed boundary states are about 0.6 eV below or above the Fermi energy depending on the termination of the hBN at the boundary, and are extended along but localized at the boundary with a lateral thickness of 2-3nm. These results suggest that unconventional physical effects similar to those observed at 2D interfaces can also exist in lower dimensions, opening a route for tuning of electronic properties at interfaces in 2D heterostructures.« less
  • Papavassiliou [Phys. Rev. B >58, 12237 (1998)] observed {open_quotes}apparently strange{close_quotes} {sup 55}Mn NMR line shape and T{sub 2} versus frequency dependence in La{sub 0.67}Ca{sub 0.33}MnO{sub 3}. The authors believe that the NMR signal originates in the domain walls and that the electron hole density varies across the domain wall for T{lt}80K. Their conclusion is that the charge variation in the domain walls is responsible for the observed strong magnetoresistivity at low temperatures. We suggest that the {open_quotes}strange{close_quotes} line shape is likely to result from the experimental conditions and not from the spatial variation of the charge density.
  • In their Comment Savosta and Novak claim that the doubly peaked {sup 55}Mn NMR line shape observed in La{sub 0.67}Ca{sub 0.33}MnO{sub 3} for T{lt}70 K [Phys. Rev. B >58, 12237 (1998)] is not real, but an artifact resulting from the experimental conditions. In support to their arguments, they present {sup 55}Mn line-shape measurements at 77 K. In this reply we present {sup 55}Mn NMR line-shape measurements under the experimental requirements suggested by Savosta and Novak, and show that at low temperatures the line shape still consists of two distinct peaks with different rf enhancement factors. This effect is explained inmore » view of recent experimental results.« less
