VázquezAbstract We investigate the effect of an electric field applied tranversely to the axis of cylindrical symmetry of a cylindrical quantum wire on the ground-state energy of the electrons in the wire using an infinite confining potential well model. For low electric fields, we find a quadratic shift of the energy levels with the electric field; while for strong fields, the Stark shift of the ground-state energy increases almost linearly with the electric field. This increase is greater for wide wires, but for narrow wires, the Stark shift of the ground-state energy does not change much with the electric field. Also, at higher electric fields, the Stark shift of the ground-state energy increases with increasing wire radius. This will lead to the decrease of the effective bandgap of a semiconducting quantum wire with electric field. (© 2003 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

KönigAbstract HgTe quantum well structures with high electron mobilities have been used to fabricate quantum interference devices. Aharonov-Bohm oscillations have been studied in the low and high magnetic field regime. In the latter case a decrease of the effective ring radius is observed. Additionally, as a consequence of the strong Rashba spin-orbit coupling within this material, it was possible to observe conductance oscillations which are due to the so-called Aharonov-Casher effect. These quantum interference effects are effectively controlled by the applied magnetic and electric field. (© 2007 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

BedoyaAbstract A study of the excitonic states in artificial molecules set up of two vertically coupled double quantum dots is presented. The electron and hole eigenstates are calculated for the quantum dot molecule. In particular, the coupling effect of the barrier and the consequent tunneling is analyzed following the evolution of the absorption spectra as function of the distance between the two dots. On the other hand, the role of the Coulomb correlation between the confined particles is also studied. We present results of relevant interactions in these systems and discuss how the optical properties of double quantum dots are affected by the interdot coupling, by the geometry of the dots and by an applied electric field.

It is concluded that zero-dimensional mixed states should form when the quality factor of the cavity mode is higher than Q , 2000. The corresponding vacuum-field Rabi splitting is close to its limiting value already for Q , 10000. Results are shown for a model GaAs-based photonic crystal nanocavity, in which single quantum dot excitons are predicted to be always in the strong coupling regime if the quantum dot is placed close to the antinode position of the electric field.
