On noninertial effects inducing a confinement of a neutral particle to a hard-wall confining potential

Knut Bakke
From the journal Open Physics

Abstract

In this contribution, we discuss the confinement of a nonrelativistic spin-half neutral particle to a hard-wall confining potential induced by noninertial effects. We show that the geometry of the manifold plays the role of a hard-wall confining potential and yields bound state solutions. We also consider a neutral particle with a permanent magnetic dipole moment interacting with a field configuration induced by noninertial effects, and discuss the behaviour of the induced fields and obtain energy levels for bound states.
