    A new treatment of the problem of a two-dimensional Wannier-Mott exciton in a uniform electric field, based on the parabolic coordinates, is presented. The quasi-stationary Hamiltonian is regularized, and the efficient numerical methods are applied. The dependence of the exciton binding energy...

    In this article, we report magneto-photoluminescence measurements on stacked self-assembled InAs quantum dots. By applying a magnetic field parallel to the growth direction, we determined the exciton reduced mass and exciton radius from the photoluminescence (PL) peak energy. We observed an...
