Noninertial effects on the Dirac oscillator in a topological defect

Knut Bakke
In this paper, we study the influence of noninertial effects on the Dirac oscillator in the cosmic string spacetime background. We discuss the behaviour of the oscillator frequency in a noninertial system that allows us to obtain relativistic bound state solutions. We also discuss the influence of the topology of the cosmic string spacetime on the relativistic energy levels, and obtain the Dirac spinors for positive-energy solutions. Furthermore, by taking the nonrelativistic limit of the energy levels, we compare the nonrelativistic energy levels to the confinement of a spin-half particle to quantum dot described by the Tan-Inkson model for a quantum dot [W.-C. Tan and J. C. Inkson, Semicond. Sci. Technol. 11, 1635 (1996)], and a hard-wall confining potential [E. Tsitsishvili et al., Phys. Rev. B 70, 115316 (2004)].
