Semiclassical model of a onedimensional quantum dot
Abstract
A onedimensional quantum dot at zero temperature is used as an example for developing a consistent semiclassical method. The method can also be applied to systems of higher dimension that admit separation of variables. For electrons confined by a quartic potential, the ThomasFermi approximation is used to calculate the selfconsistent potential, the electron density distribution, and the total energy as a function of the electron number and the effective electron charge representing the strength of interaction between electrons. Use is made of scaling with respect to the electron number. An energy quantization condition is derived. The oscillating part of the electron density and both gradient and shell corrections to the total electron energy are calculated by using the results based on the ThomasFermi model and analytical expressions derived in this study. The dependence of the shell correction on the interaction strength is examined. Comparisons with results calculated by the density functional method are presented. The relationship between the results obtained and the Strutinsky correction is discussed.

In this paper we study electronic transport through a quantum dot array containing an arbitrary number of quantum dots connected in a series by tunnel coupling under dc bias. The onsite Coulomb interaction is ignored. The retarded selfenergy of any dot in the array is made up of left and right components and is of staircase type, terminating at corresponding electron reservoirs. We calculate the dc current based on the nonequilibrium Green{close_quote}s function formalism developed by Jauho et al. [A.P. Jauho, Ned S. Wingreen, and Y. Meir, Phys. Rev. B >50, 5528 (1994)]. The dc current in both finite andmore »

Exact semiclassical expansions for onedimensional quantum oscillators
A set of rules is given for dealing with WKB expansions in the onedimensional analytic case, whereby such expansions are not considered as approximations but as exact encodings of wave functions, thus allowing for analytic continuation with respect to whichever parameters the potential function depends on, with an exact control of small exponential effects. These rules, which include also the case when there are double turning points, are illustrated on various examples, and applied to the study of bound state or resonance spectra. In the case of simple oscillators, it is thus shown that the Rayleigh{endash}Schr{umlt o}dinger series is Borelmore » 
Energyselective optical excitation and detection in InAs/InP quantum dot ensembles using a onedimensional optical microcavity
We demonstrate the selective optical excitation and detection of subsets of quantum dots (QDs) within an InAs/InP ensemble using a SiO{sub 2}/Ta{sub 2}O{sub 5}based optical microcavity. The low variance of the exciton transition energy and dipole moment tied to the narrow linewidth of the microcavity mode is expected to facilitate effective qubit encoding and manipulation in a quantum dot ensemble with ease of quantum state readout relative to qubits encoded in single quantum dots. 
A theoretical analysis of the optical absorption properties in onedimensional InAs/GaAs quantum dot superlattices
We present theoretical investigations of miniband structures and optical properties of InAs/GaAs onedimensional quantum dot superlattices (1DQDSLs). The calculation is based on the multiband k·p theory, including the conduction and valence band mixing effects, the strain effect, and the piezoelectric effect; all three effects have periodic boundary conditions. We find that both the electronic and optical properties of the 1DQDSLs show unique states which are different from those of well known single quantum dots (QDs) or quantum wires. We predict that the optical absorption spectra of the 1DQDSLs strongly depend on the interdot spacing because of the interdot carrier couplingmore » 
Quantum mechanical and semiclassical description of a twodimensional fission model
The penetration through a two dimensional fission barrier is investigated by a fully quantum mechanical coupled channel calculation and by a new semiclassical method. One finds a quantitative agreement. (auth)
