Nonlinear optical properties of quantum dots: Excitons in nanostructures
2009 (English)In: Journal of nonlinear optical physics and materials, ISSN 0218-8635, Vol. 18, no 2, 195-226 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
We review the concepts of excitons and excitonic polaritons, their nonlinear optical properties in nanostructures and their applications within integrated electronics and optoelectronics. Various theoretical aspects of excitons and excitonic polaritons are introduced, followed by a summary of their experimental and application-specific development in nanostructures at the electronic and photonic engineering levels. A number of technical applications are highlighted.
