The dependencies of the binding energies of the lowest four 1s-like exciton states in GaAs-(Ga,Al)As coupled double quantum wells (CDQW) on the geometric parameters of the system are theoretically studied. A variational approach, together with the parabolic band and effective mass approximations, were considered in order to perform the numerical calculations. It is shown that in the case of a symmetric system there is a degeneracy between the heavy-hole even and odd states and this degeneracy can be removed by the presence of a sufficiently narrow middle barrier. In contrast to this fact, the electron even and odd states are never degenerated. It is detected that, if the system is asymmetric, there will appear binding energies anticrossings between the heavy-hole states at the point of the asymmetric → symmetric QW transition. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

In the present work we report the effects of a geometrical confinement and tilted applied electric field on the electronic energy levels in a semiconducting quantum disk. Calculations are performed in the effective mass approximation and using a variational method. The results can be summarized as follows: (1) due to the infinite confinement along the all directions of the heterostructure, the variational calculation with two parameters for tilted applied electric field can be treated with two independent each other variational parameters; (2) the magnitude of the energy shift is an increasing function of the applied electric field; (3) the effects of the applied electric field are magnified as the dimensions of the heterostructure (height and radius) grow; and finally (4) for large enough applied electric field the energy shift is a linear function of the applied electric field. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Using a variational procedure within the effective mass approximation, we have calculated the hydrogenic impurity binding energy as well as the impurity-related nonlinear optical absorption in a single quantum ring with axial n-type delta-doping. The delta-like potential along the z-direction is analytically modeled with a Hartree-like conffning proffle fftted to a one-dimensional Thomas Fermi-based potential in the local density approximation. Both on-center and on-edge impurity positions are considered and the energies of the impurity states are examined as functions of the vertical size of the ring. It is found that the effect of changes in the geometry of the quantum ring leads to a shifting of the resonant peaks of the intra-band optical spectrum. Source

In this work the variational method is applied within the framework of the parabolic band and effective mass approximations, in order to study the 1s-like exciton energy spectrum in the GaAs-Ga 1-xAlxAs asymmetric coupled double quantum well configuration. The obtained states are then used to calculate the coefficient of nonlinear optical rectification associated to the transitions between the excitonic levels. It is shown that different exciton interstate transitions can lead to comparable optical rectification responses. With few exceptions, the increase of the system dimensions implies the appearance of a redshift in the resonant peak positions as well as the fall of their amplitudes. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. Source

In this work the variations of the exciton-related optical absorption and the change of the refractive index in a GaAs-(Ga,Al)As double quantum well as functions of the geometric parameters of the heterostructure are investigated. The variational method is applied within the framework of the parabolic band and effective mass approximations, in order to obtain the 1s-like exciton energy spectrum. The outcome for the related optical coefficients shows a quenched and redshifted light absorption as a result of the increment in the inner barrier and right-hand well widths, with the possibility of an enhancement of the excitonic contribution to the relative change in the refractive index. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
