Abstract Nanotechnology is a relatively new field that can be employed to deliver substantial advances in most disciplines. Nanoparticles and nanostructures are of particular interest as their characteristics on the nanoscale are different to that of their bulk counterparts. Therefore, it is highly desirable to observe the evolution of these minute structures so that we can gain insight into how one may tailor specific characteristics, for given applications. A theoretical model, complete in its analysis of the various phenomena that occur on the nanoscale, which provide sufficiently accurate results compared to that of experimentation would be invaluable to the materials science and industry.
