We demonstrate a multi-domain scheme for calculation of electronic and optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures. Three progressively smaller computational domains are used for strain simulation, single particle states calculation and computation of the Coulomb scattering matrix elements. Proposed approach offers a significant reduction of computational time and memory savings without sacrificing the accuracy of obtained spectra. We illustrate this method on the example of InAs/InP self-assembled quantum dots.
