Abstract

Assigning dimension to θ on par with r, in the wave function Ψ(r,θ), we have quantum engineered the orbital angular momentum and the corresponding orbital degrees of freedom of s electrons. The quantized orbital angular momentum of s electron in an atom is estimated as 0.75ћ2 using angular momentum engineering.  This restoration of orbital angular momentum leads to new additional quantum numbers to s electrons and there is a possibility for the alteration of s electron occupation. This newly discovered s electron property can be invoked where ever the present quantum theory is inadequate to explain some of the exotic properties observed in modern materials.
