#### Abstract

Simultaneous effects of spin–orbit interaction, external electric and magnetic fields and dimension on the electronic structure of a mono-layer quantum wire are investigated in this paper. Due to the direct effects of external electric field on the structure's symmetries and spin–orbit interaction, energy eigenvalues and functions of the system are calculated with axial or in-plane electric field. It is shown that spin–orbit interaction modifies energy eigenvalues and functions of the system with regard to external factors.
