Abstract

The energy degeneracies of charge carriers in cubic GaAs/GaAlAs quantum dots are analyzed and contrasted with the degeneracies of solutions to the infinite potential well problem. Accurate energy eigenvalues for realistic systems are computed by the finite element method and group theoretic arguments are applied to explain the removal of degeneracies only present in the infinite well case.
