Quantum rings

Like quantum dots, quantum rings are ring-shaped semiconductors intensively studied because of their properties intermediate between those of bulk semiconductors and those of discrete molecules. However, few reliable and accurate energetic data are available for many-electron quantum dots due to the complexity of the calculations. Using state-of-the-art quantum chemistry methods, we investigate different models for quantum rings, and their effects on the electronic and magnetic properties, including the Berry phase phenomenon and the Aharonov-Bohm effect.
