We study the exciton polariton contribution to the Stokes shift in colloidal quantum dots (QDs). By detailed quantum mechanical description of light-matter interaction and temporal analysis of incident electromagnetic field across the QD using the finite-difference time-domain method, we have shown that the optical excitation of an exciton in the QD and its coupling with the excitation radiation (i.e., exciton polariton) induce strong variations in the dielectric constant of the QD which contribute significantly to the Stokes shift and cause modifications 50 in the absorption spectrum that agrees well with experiments.
