Compares two time-dependent methods with a time-independent density functional method for the calculation of the frequency dependent polarizability of two interacting quantum confined particles. Shifting of absorption intensity to higher energy transitions with increasing interaction energy between the nearest neighbor quantum dot sites.

    For circular quantum dot (QD), taking into account the Razhba spin–orbit interaction (SOI), an exact energy spectrum is obtained. For a small SOI constant, the eigenfunctions of the QD are found. It is shown that the application of a radiation field with circular polarization removes the...

    We report experimental results of two room-temperature single photon sources with definite polarization based on emitters embedded in either cholesteric or nematic liquid crystal hosts. In the first case, a cholesteric 1-D photonic bandgap microcavity provides circular polarization of definite...
