Paper Abstract

Linear and nonlinear absorption spectra of neutral D0 hydrogenic impurity located at the center of the CdTe/ZnTe spherical quantum dot (QD) were investigated after assuming a spherically symmetric confining potential of finite depth. Calculations were performed under the effective mass approximation on the basis of exact solution of the Schrödinger and Poisson equations. Eigenfunctions were expressed in terms of the Whittaker and Coulomb wave functions. Results for D0 impurity energies of ground 1s, and excited 2p, 3d, and 2s states strongly depend on QD radius if it does not exceed a few effective Bohr radius. Wave functions and Stark shift energy levels in external electric field were determined from a variational-calculus approach for states labeled m=0. The absorption spectra for intersubband transitions were found to depend strongly on the QD radius. Whether or not the impurity is present, the peak energy of absorption decreases with increasing QD radius. An external electric field increases the transition energy but does not significantly change absorption characteristics.
