The influence of size and shape is investigated for quantum-dot electronic states and intra-band oscillator strengths adapting a method originally due to Stevenson. The present work solves the one-band envelopefunction problem for conduction-band eigenstates in the framework of k · p theory using general curved coordinates. The eigenstates found are subsequently employed to express intra-band oscillator strengths and emphasis is given to the dependence of oscillator strengths on quantum-dot size and shape. We…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
