We propose a scheme for calculation of optical functions of a semiconductor with Rydberg excitons, for a wide interval of dimensions. We start with 2-dimensional structure, then going to thin films and ending on 3-dimensional bulk crystals. The calculations including the polaritons are performed, the case of large number of polariton branches is discussed and obtained theoretical absorption spectra show good agreement with experimental data.

Interaction of Rydberg excitons in cuprous oxide with phonons and photons: optical linewidth and polariton effect
We demonstrate that the optical linewidth of Rydberg excitons in Cu2O can be completely explained by scattering with acoustical and optical phonons, whereby the dominant contributions stems from the

TLDR
From detailed comparison of experiment and theory, the cubic anisotropy parameter of the Cu(2)O valence band is determined, which shows a threefold splitting that depends systematically on n, in agreement with theoretical considerations.
