Abstract

We present theoretical calculations of type II CdSe/CdTe quantum dots systems. We use an 8-band k.p Hamiltonian that includes spin-orbit interaction, strain, and first order piezoelectric effects. Exciton and bi-exciton states are found using the configuration interaction (CI) method that explicitly includes the effects of the Coulomb interaction, as well as exchange and correlation effects between many-electron configurations. We study convergence of the CI Hamiltonian with respect to the number of single particle states used in creation of the Hamiltonian. We show that there is a very strong correlation between the dielectric constant of the environment and exciton and bi-exciton energies.
