Quantum mechanical model explains about the various kinds of atomic orbitals that are different in the amount of energy and shapes and classical electrostatics is the stationary electric charges. The charges are defined as positive and negative.

This paper discusses about Quantum mechanical and semi-classical electrostatic in a cross section (perpendicular) of a two dimensional trigate structures; its characteristics such as Quantum electron density, Classical electron density, classical potential distribution plots, its 6 wave functions for two different grids values are presented.
