Abstract

Recent technological advances in the production of polymer particles suggests the feasibility of generating polymer nanoparticles from solution with discrete electronic structure in close analogy with quantum dots. We call these new particles quantum drops, which have controllable physical properties including radius, composition, chemical potential, and magnetic properties. We consider the electronic properties of electrons confined on the surface of these spherical polymer nanoparticles using a new Hamiltonian and semiclassical quantization.
