Abstract

The band spectrum of quantum dots superlattices of different shapes at points of high symmetry is determined. Cubic, cylindrical and spherical quantum dots are considered. The width of the minizone is calculated. The dependences of the minizones on the geometric dimensions of quantum dots and their concentration are established.
