Abstract

Due to the large energy splitting of the single-electron levels in a small quantum dot, only one single electron level and one single hole level can be made resonant with the levels in the conduction band and valence band. This results in a closed system with nine distinct levels, which are split by the Coulomb interactions. We show that flat and tall cylindrically symmetric dots have level schemes with different selection rules. In both cases entangled photon pairs can be efficiently produced.
