Multiband Electronic Structure of Magnetic Quantum Dots: Numerical Studies

Title variants
Languages of publication
Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) doped with magnetic impurities have been a focus of continuous research for a couple of decades. A significant effort has been devoted to studies of magnetic polarons (MP) in these nanostructures. These collective states arise through exchange interaction between a carrier confined in a QD and localized spins of the magnetic impurities (typically: Mn). Our theoretical description of various MP properties in self-assembled QDs is discussed. We present a self-consistent, temperature-dependent approach to MPs formed by a valence band hole. The Luttinger-Kohn k· p Hamiltonian is used to account for the important effects of spin-orbit interaction.
