Paper Abstract

In this article, we predicted the optical properties of the thin film including quantum dots according to the mathematic mode which is based on the quantum theory. The method consists of two parts. The first one is the classical explanation for the interaction between light and matters. It takes care of the interaction as dipoles and electromagnetic wave and describes clearly the profile of spectrum. Another part is the transition of quantized energy, absorption and spontaneous emission which exhibits singular valleys or peaks in spectrum. For the reason of quantum theory, we have to verify Bohr radius of each crystallized material to make sure that the particle size is small enough to present quantum effect. After constructing the spectrum, the data significantly presents optical properties of matters, we try to re-define the effective refractive index of the thin film including quantum dots by the spectrum which is the result of light affected by matters.
