Title
Edge confinement of a two-dimensional electron gas and its relevance to the electron density near a vacancy defect in graphite
Author
Abstract
Motivated by electron-tunnelling microscopy showing enhancement of electron density near the HOMO level in graphite, we present an analytical solution for the density in a two-dimensional free-electron assembly subject to edge confinement. In fact starting from the so-called Slater sum of statistical mechanics, the general result for arbitrary dimension d is obtained for this electron gas model.
