How does the particle in the box model relate to electron confinement in Quantum Dots

To quote Wikapedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_dot Nanoscale semiconductor materials tightly confine either electrons or electron holes. The confinement is similar to a three-dimensional ...

What is the reason for discreteness in energy level when an electron (electron-hole pair) is confined? [duplicate]

I studied about quantum confinement for a presentation on Quantum Well, wire and dots and came across a term 'Quantum Confinement', it said quantum confinement leads to discrete in energy level. And ...

Absorption and Emission Spectra of Quantum Dots

For one of my next labs, I will be measuring the absorbtion and emission spectra of a tolulene solution with quantum dots in it. The gist of the idea is that I will end up obtaining a graph similar to ...

Why do phosphorescent screens need electron energy in order of KeV to emit light, when visible light photons only need ~eV?

All phosphorescent screens operate at ~KeV energies, but emit photons with energies ~eV. Why is such a high input energy necessary? What is the situation with quantum dots, do they also require hight ...

Has anyone come across the relationship between Higher order confinement wave-functions and corresponding Zeeman Interaction?

I'm studying a hole quantum dot in Germanium. The problem is described in the Luttinger Spin-3/2 basis and takes Fock-Darwin states as solutions in the Quantum Dot plane(xy plane). Furthermore, I ...

Are electrons in a semiconductor quantum dot is a real electron or just a quasiparticle with a well-defined spin?

It seems there is a consensus that in the gate-defined quantum dot exists isolated electron with well-defined spin. And I understand that by tuning the voltages applied to the 2DEG at quantum well, ...

What dimensions would a quantum confinement system have to be for its electromagnetic emission spectrum to be in the radio section?

Just as specific dimensional restrictions on systems that have quantum confinement like quantum dots lead to the tenability of the emission spectrum of such a system, I was wondering how this idea ...

In spin qubit of quantum dots, why $|S>$ and $|T0>$ state have energy difference?

As we know, the Zeeman splitting by magnetic field causes the energy difference between |↑> and |↓>, therefore states like |T+>=|↑↑> have a different energy from others. But why states ...

Golden quantum dots blinking and plasmons

I have been reading this article about golden QD as a way to avoid QD blinking. I understand that the surface plasmons here act as a nano antenna which strongly concentrates the light, but I don’t ...

Bound states on a Quantum Dot and Tunneling on and off the Dot

Question is essentially: How can the states on a quantum dot be bound when we can tunnel onto them? If plane wave states can tunnel onto them, these plane waves states and the 'bound' states will have ...
