The C60 Molecule with the Step-Potential Model
The geometry of the C60-molecule, determined by electron-phonon coupling, is obtained by finding the selfconsistency between bond length and μ-electron density in the middle of the bond. The μ-electrons are considered to move along a one-dimensional step-potential forming a network of bond potentials. The one-particle Schrödinger equation is solved numerically fulfilling branching conditions at each site and the μ-electron density distribution is evaluated. The bond length pattern and the electronic spectrum of the ground state of the C60-molecule is investigated as well as the charge localization in C60 n−
