This article has been retracted at the request of the Editor-in-Chief.

The article contains significant overlap with a paper that had already appeared in Physica E., 60 (2014) 160-165. One of the conditions of submission of a paper for publication is that authors declare explicitly that their work is original and has not appeared in a publication elsewhere. As such this article represents a severe abuse of the scientific publishing system. The scientific community takes a very strong view on this matter and apologies are offered to readers of the journal that this was not detected during the submission process.
