    • Abstract


      We study the effects of intense THz laser field on the ground-state binding energy of heavy hole excitons confined in GaAs spherical quantum dots. The calculation is performed using the variational method in the framework of the single band effective mass theory. Our results show that (i) the laser electric field lowers the binding energy for all quantum dot radii, making the exciton clustered near the centre of the dot, (ii) the binding energy is mainly due to the dressed potential making the kinetic part insensitive to the field and (iii) the behaviour of the exciton, under the approximations used, can be modelled by a unique set of plots, depending on the material only via its excitonic units.
