Abstract

The influence of lateral electric field on one-electron states and intraband absorption in two-dimensional concentric double quantum rings is investigated. The confining potential of the rings is modeled as a double harmonic central potential. Using the exact diagonalization technique, we calculate the dependence of the electron energy spectrum as a function of the electric field strength as well as the inner ring radius. Also, different values of confinement strength are considered. Selection rule is obtained for intraband transitions, caused by the direction of incident light polarization. The intraband absorption coefficient is calculated for different values of electric field strength, inner ring radius, confinement strength and incident light polarization direction. The combined influence of electric field strength and change of confining strength show that while the increment of the first one leads only to blueshift of absorption spectrum, the augment of the second one makes the redshift. In addition, both blueshift and redshift of the spectrum have been obtained with the enlargement of inner ring radius. Finally, we show that the absorption spectrum undergoes redshift by changing the polarization of incident light from x- to y-axis.
