Semiconductor nanostructures always contain a certain degree of disorder due to interface roughness and/or alloy disorder. The disorder has significant in uence on the optical properties, e.g., excitonic absorption spectra . An adaptive wavelet approach [2,3] for the solution of the excitonic Schrödinger equation, i.e., the semiconductor Bloch equation for the interband coherence linear in the external field, has been developed and applied to compute absorption spectra and/or wave functions. Results obtained for a thin GaAs semiconductor quantum wire considering a number of different model disorder potentials are presented and discussed.
