The exact solutions for the two-dimensional motion of a conduction band electron in a disc shaped quantum dot are used to calculate the optical absorption as well as the corrections to the refractive index in the system. The cover shows the probability density corresponding to the first excited electron state as in figure 3 of the article. Picture: C. M. Duque, M. Mora-Ramos, C. A. Duque, pp. 327–337, in this issue.
