Using spherical geometry, we introduce a novel model to study excitons confined in a three-dimensional space, which offers unparalleled mathematical simplicity while retaining much of the key physics. This new model consists of an exciton trapped on the 3-sphere (i.e. the surface of a four-dimensional ball), and provides a unified treatment of Frenkel and Wannier-Mott excitons. Moreover, we show that one can determine, for particular values of the dielectric constant ε, the closed-form...[Show more]
