The Effect of Spin-Orbit Splitting on the Third-Order Nonlinear Optical Susceptibility in CdSe/ZnS Quantum Dot Materials
The nonlinear optical susceptibility with inter-subband transitions between conduction band and valence band is theoretically calculated for CdSe/ZnS core-shell quantum dot (QD). Under the effective-mass approximation, the eigenenergy and wavefunction of electrons and holes have been calculated by solving stationary Schrödinger equation. The third-order nonlinear optical susceptibilities χ(3) of quadratic electro-optic effects (QEOE) have been also calculated in the case that spin-orbit splitting is considered.
