The polarization of a quantum electron confined in a one-dimensional potential well in the presence of a uniform electric field is calculated numerically. We find that the negative polarization of the first excited state in previous calculations is solely due to the neglect of the electric field outside the quantum well.

Nonlinear optical properties of a Poschl-Teller quantum well under electric and magnetic fields
AYTEKİN, ÖZLEM; Turgut, Sadi; Tomak, Mehmet (2012-04-01)
The nonlinear optical properties of a Poschl-Teller Quantum well (PTQW) under electric and magnetic fields are studied. The salient feature of this potential is its flexibility. It can be made asymmetrical by a proper choice of its two parameters. Optical rectification, second and third-harmonic generation susceptibilities are calculated using the density matrix formalism. We study the effects of quantum confinement, electric and magnetic fields on all of these optical coefficients.
Vacuum decay and the transmission resonances in space-dependent electric fields
Dumlu, Cesim K. (2014-03-11)
We investigate the decay of a quantum electrodynamical (QED) vacuum in arbitrary space-dependent electric fields. In particular, we analyze the resonance peaks of the positron emission spectrum for the external fields with subcycle structure. For this, we study the transmission probability in the framework of the scattering approach to vacuum pair production. In an under-the-barrier scattering regime, we show that the width of a transmission resonance can be enhanced when the effective scattering potential ...
Electronic properties of a large quantum dot at a finite temperature
Gulveren, B; Atav, U; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2005-09-01)
The physical properties of a two-dimensional parabolic quantum dot composed of large number of interacting electrons are numerically determined by the Thomas Fermi (TF) method at a finite temperature. Analytical solutions are given for zero temperature for comparative purposes. The exact solution of the TF equation is obtained for the non-interacting system at finite temperatures. The effect of the number of particles and temperature on the properties are investigated both for interacting and non-interactin...
