Low-lying states of an ion-molecular D þ 2 complex in quantum rings with different and small cross-sections are analyzed. Following the adiabatic procedure, we have deduced a one-dimensional wave equation with periodic conditions, which describes low-lying levels related to the electron rotation around the symmetric axis under the Coulomb interaction with(More)
