# Magneto-optical properties of Rydberg excitons: Center-of-mass quantization approach

@article{ZielinskaRaczynska2017MagnetoopticalPO, title={Magneto-optical properties of Rydberg excitons: Center-of-mass quantization approach}, author={Sylwia Zieli'nska-Raczy'nska and David Ziemkiewicz and Gerard Czajkowski}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2017}, volume={95}, pages={15} }

We show how to compute the magnetooptical functions (absorption, reflection, and transmission) when Rydberg Exciton-Polaritons appear, including the effect of the coherence between the electron-hole pair and the electromagnetic field, and the polaritonic effect. Using the Real Density Matrix Approach the analytical expressions for magnetooptical functions are obtained and numerical calculations for Cu$_2$0 crystal are performed. The influence of the strength of applied external magnetic field… Expand
