Abstract:We demonstrate an efficient numerical scheme for the computation of the excitonic optical response of actual GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wire structures including a large set of relevant effects; structural, valence band-mixing, dielectric and many-body effects can be accounted for. The optical response of excitons within k.p envelope function and Hartree-Fock approximation, are computed with band-mixing effects by stream-lined finite element techniques. The quantum-mechanical effects linked to the wire symmetry are also explicitely taken into account for the first time. A detailed comparison with relevant experimental PLE results is made, and a good agreement is obtained, including polarization anisotropy and binding energies of all bright excitons (A1, B1, A2)
