[en] The electronic properties of laterally coupled InGaAs/GaAs quantum dot molecule are studied theoretically under in-plane electric field. The quantum dot molecule energy spectrum and envelope functions are calculated by solving one-band effective-mass Schrödinger equation with considering strain effect by employing finite element method in three dimensions. The obtained results indicate that the electron's coupling energy strongly depends on the In mole fractions of the nanohole, such that quantum dots act as a molecule in case that In mole fractions of dots are larger than that of nanohole. It can be also observed that electrons perceive the double-dots structure composing quantum dot molecule in close distances(less than 7 nm), while the holes discern two single dots structure. The effect of an in-plane electric field on the energy spectrum is investigated and it can be demonstrated that the coupling energy can be tuned by applying a low-intensity static electric field.
