A uniform conductor of finite length and a square cross section is assumed to model the copper nanowires. The energy spectrum of the wire is determined by solving the one-electron Schrodinger equation with the potential described by a square well potential. The details of size dependence of electronic characteristics of the copper nanowires are illustrated in this present work. © World Scientific Publishing Company. 关键词: Nanostructured materials;Copper;Fermi level;Ionization of solids;Particle size analysis;Nanowires;Nano-scale modeling;Ionization potential;Finite length
