RAU Professors Published in SPIE Spotlight Book Series
“Fundamental Absorption of Semiconductor Quantum Dots”, authored by Head of RAU Department of General Physics and Quantum Nanostructures Associate Professor David Hayrapetyan, Ph.D., Director of RAU Institute of Engineering and Physics Professor Hayk Sarkisyan, D.Sc., and Professor Eduard Kazaryan, D.Sc. was published in the SPIE Spotlight series, issued by the International Society for Optics and Photonics, based in Bellingham, Washington, U.S.
The Spotlight describes the process of fundamental absorption in a variety of quantum dot (QD) geometries, such as spherical, cylindrical, ellipsoidal, lens-shaped, conical, and spherical layered, including in the presence of external fields. Other topics include the effect of exciton effects on the interband absorption coefficients and the application of QD ensembles in QD-LED devices. The mathematics involved is presented with as much detail as possible, and readers need only be familiar with semiconductor physics and quantum mechanics.
SPIE Spotlights are innovative eBook series featuring concise, digital-only publications which either summarize a broad topic or highlight a specific niche. Written for a wide audience, these peer-reviewed eBooks get straight to the point, highlighting the most important aspects of the given subject.
