Controlled-scattering resonances in a spherical potential well

Main Article Content

Andrew Akala C. Yinka Banjo


Understanding of collision processes is required in designing robust nano-particles for future applications. This study proposes a technique for controlling scattering resonances by using the tuning of well parameters to impose pre-determined thresholds on resonances and bound states in collision processes. The theoretical concept of scattering in a spherical potential well, at varying depths was adopted. A scan of q from 0 to 5π at incremental steps of q= π/p yields (p x 5)+1 number of state(s), and p-1 state(s) resonate(s) at each bound state.
