The electron acoustic solitary waves are studied in unmagnetized two population electron quantum plasmas. The quantum hydrodynamic model is employed with the Sagdeev potential approach to describe the arbitrary amplitude electron acoustic waves in a two electron population dense Fermi plasma. It is found that hot electron density hump structures are formed in the subsonic region in such type of quantum plasmas. The wave amplitude as well as the width of the soliton are increased with the increase of percentage presence of cold (thinly populated) electrons in a multicomponent quantum plasma. It is found that an increase in quantum diffraction parameter broadens the nonlinear structure. Furthermore, the amplitude of the nonlinear electron acoustic wave is found to increase with the decrease in Mach number. The numerical results are also presented to understand the formation of solitons in two electron population Fermi plasmas.

    In the description of (high-frequency) electron-acoustic solitons in a plasma consisting of positive ions, cool electrons, and hot electrons, the dynamics of the ions plays no essential role and can be eliminated from the treatment, the ions merely providing a constant positive background. It is...

    A laser propagating through a plasma, in the presence of an electron Bernstein wave, undergoes nonlinear mode coupling, producing a beat mode (ω+ω0, k+k0) where (ω0, k0) and (ω, k) are the frequency and wave number of the laser and the Bernstein mode. The oscillatory electron...

    Delocalized image surface states in free-standing hollow silica nanospheres populated with one or two electrons or an exciton are theoretically predicted for a wide range of internal radii and shell thicknesses.
