Hellmann Potential in Spinless Salpeter Equation with Potential Barrier within the Framework of Nikiforov-Uvarov method

Akaninyene Daniel Antia


In this paper, we have solved the spinless Salpeter equation (SSE) with Hellmann potential under the framework of NIkiforov-Uvarov (NU) method. The energy eigenvalues and corresponding wave functions for this system express in terms of the Jacobi polynomial are also obtained. With the help of approximation scheme the potential barrier has been evaluated. The results obtained in this work would have many applications in nuclear physics, chemical physics, atomic and molecular physics, molecular chemistry and other related areas as the results under limiting cases could be used to study the binding energy and interaction of some diatomic molecules. As a guide to interested readers, we have provided numerical data which discuss the energy spectra for this system.
