The main object of this paper is to analyze the recent results obtained on the Neumann realization of the Schrödinger operator in the case of dimension 3 by Lu and Pan. After presenting a short treatment of their spectral analysis of keymodels, we show briefly how to implement the techniques of Helffer-Morame in order to give some localization of the ground state. This leaves open the question of the localization by curvature effect which was solved in the case of dimension 2 in our previous work and will be analysed in the case of dimension 3 in a future paper.
