Magnetoexciton ground state for heavy- and light-hole excitons in anisotropic semiconductors

Note Brevi


We show how to compute the eigenvalues of an anisotropic Schrödinger equation for light- and heavy-hole excitons in the presence of a magnetic field using a perturbational approach and a simplified deltalike interaction potential. Performing the calculation with a potential approapriate to bulk GaAs crystal we obtain a simple relation between the binding energy at zero field and the diamagnetic shift at low fields.
