In the current work the thermodynamic properties of a typical mono-layer quantum wire under the influence of an external static electric and a magnetic field are investigated. To this aim, first the complete energy spectrum of the system is calculated by solving the Schrödinger equation in the presence of the Rashba spin-orbit interaction. Second, the Tsallis formalism is applied to obtain entropy, internal energy and specific heat of the system. Because of the disorder increment with considering the spin-orbit interaction and its strengths, the results show that the spin-orbit interaction has considerable effects on the thermodynamics of the system. Also, the results propose the possibility to control the statistical and thermodynamical properties of typical systems by tuning the spin-orbit interaction strength via external gates.
