Taking into account the tetrahedral shape of a quantum-dot quantum well (QDQW) when describing excitonic states, phonon modes, and the exciton-phonon interaction in the structure, we obtain within a nonadiabatic approach a quantitative interpretation of the photoluminescence spectrum of a single CdS/HgS/CdS QDQW. We find that the exciton ground state in a tetrahedral QDQW is bright, in contrast to the dark ground state for a spherical QDQW. The position of the phonon peaks in the… Expand
