Keywords: irreversible transfer, kinetic equations, quantum dots, electron-phonon interaction
Theory is presented of the electronic excitation and electronic charge transfer between quantum dots. Kinetic equations describing this irreversible transfer are developed using quantum transport approach. The non-adiabatic property of the electron coupling to the atomic lattice vibrations is used. Numerical analysis is performed.
