Local Field Effects in an Isolated Quantum Dot : Self-Consistent Microscopic Approach

A self-consistent microscopic local-field theory for an isolated arbitrary shaped quantum dot (QD) has been presented. In our approach we introduce into the Schrödinger equation a depolarization field induced by an external electromagnetic field, and combine this idea with the second quantization technique for electron–hole pairs. As a result, we succeeded… CONTINUE READING
