Shell-Filling Effects in Circular Quantum Dots


We investigate the dependence of the capacitive energy associated with a circular quantum dot on the number of electrons in the dot and on the parameters defining the potential confinement. Our results reproduce the shell-filling behavior that has recently been experimentally observed and allow us to estimate the shape of the confinement potential and the dot size of the experiments.
