A study of thermodynamic properties of quadratic exponential-type potential in D-dimensions

Uduakobong Sunday Okorie


We solved the Schrodinger equation with Quadratic Exponential-Type Potential (QEP) model in D-dimensions using the Modified factorization method. The energy eigenvalues and total wavefunctions were obtained in a Gauss hypergeometric form. The thermodynamic properties including vibrational partition function, vibrational mean energy, vibrational mean free energy and vibrational entropy have been calculated for the electronic state of (X1 Σ +g) Rubidium (Rb2) dimer. The QEP discussed can be applied extensively in Physics and Chemistry, especially in molecular dynamics.
