In this work, the second harmonic generation from excitonic transitions in semiconductor quantum dots is computationally studied. By integrating a density matrix treatment with a partial configuration interaction approach, we obtain the second order susceptibility as a function of externally applied electric and magnetic fields for highly confined neutral and charged excitons. Our results show an enhancement in the nonlinear response with respect to analogous optical processes based on…

Effects of electrostatic environment on the electrically triggered production of entangled photon pairs from droplet epitaxial quantum dots
This work finds that reduction of the fine structure splitting can be substantially optimized by tilting the field and seeding impurities along the droplet elongation axis, and provides evidence of how the presence of charged impurities and in-plane bias components, may account for different degrees of splitting manipulation in dots with similar shape, size and growth conditions.
