Abstract

This paper is devoted to the development of a universal physical model of the electron subsystem of a semiconductor nanocrystal in the form of a rectangular parallelepiped—a nanocuboid—lying in an external homogeneous electric field. The electroabsorption of a nanocuboid is computed in terms of the proposed model, and a comparative analysis of the electroabsorption of nanocrystals with various ratios of the sizes of the edges: quantum dots, nanorods, and nanoplates is carried out. It is shown that nanoplates are the most promising for creating electrooptic devices for photonics.
