Abstract

The energies of the two energetically lowest dipole-allowed electron-hole-pair states in semiconductor microcrystallites are computed variationally. Details of the quantum confinement conditions, such as the finite value of the quantum confinement potential and the different effective electron-hole masses inside and outside the crystallites, are considered explicitly. Significant deviations from the infinite-potential approximation are obtained.
