Abstract: The wave functions of single-electron states localised on a system of single-level ideal quantum dots in a semiconductor matrix are constructed. The standard Kane theory, which describes the renormalisation of the effective mass of electrons in bulk III – V semiconductors, is transformed, for the first time as far as we know, for small-size quantum dots. The renormalised electron mass in a quantum dot depends on its ground state energy, which, in turn, depends on this mass. Thus, a self-consistent problem is obtained for calculating the electron binding energy. The radius of the Debye screening of the Coulomb interaction in a system of quantum dots is calculated at room temperature. The Coulomb repulsion of electrons localised on dots limits from above the possible number of filled dots. The condition is formulated for the optimal concentration of quantum dots. A classical distribution function for the probability of quantum dot filling is constructed. It is found the state, where electrons fill exactly half the maximum possible number of filled dots, exhibits the minimal energy (and therefore the most stable), the condition being fairly universal. In particular, it can be used to estimate the limiting efficiency of quantum-dot diode lasers.

Keywords: system of single-level ideal quantum dots, Coulomb interaction, binding energy, transformation of Kane's theory for small quantum dots, critical size of ideal dots, Debye radius in the system of dots, distribution function over the number of filled dots, condition of optimal filling.
