Second-Harmonic and Third-Harmonic Generation in Nanostructures with Asymmetric Confinement Potential: The Role of Two-level Atom Approximation
The second harmonic generation (SHG) and third harmonic generation (THG) into a cylindrical quantum dot (CQD) with asymmetric confinement potential is studied theoretically within the framework the two-level atom approximation, by using the matrix density formalism. The energy levels and waves functions of an electron into CQD they were obtained by solving the time-independent Schrödinger equation. The numerical calculations make for a CQD of GaAs/GaAlAs. It was found that the increase in the confinement of the charge carriers produced by the increase of the magnetic field and/or the dimensions of the nanostructure generates a shift to blue in the transition energies of the electrons. Also a multiple resonances in the two-level atom approximation was found. These were associated with transition between excited state and ground state and a second transition getting a change permanent dipole moment.For the English version of the abstract, please be careful with the language.
