An analytical formulation of the interband optical transmission and reflectivity spectra of a single quantum dot embedded in a semiconductor is presented. We consider the effect of the sample surface as well as other reflecting surfaces on the shape of the spectra near the ground state exciton resonance. The saturation of the transmission and reflectivity spectra due to the quantum optical saturation of the transition at higher light power is presented. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
