### How is the color difference of CdS nano-particles related to the “particle in a box” problem in quantum mechanics?

In my lecture on quantum mechanics, I was told that nano-particles of CdS with different sizes of have different colors and that this fact is a direct consequence of the "particle in a box" problem. ...

### Can conductivity (or resistivity) value be assigned to 2D materials?

2D materials, such as graphene monolayer or graphene nanoribbon, don't really have a cross section. By definition, conductivity is $\sigma = \frac{J}{E}$, and $J$, the current density, is calculated ...
