© 2018, Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature. The optical Aharonov-Bohm effect in a single quantum ring is associated with disorder effects. In the presence of structure anisotropy, localisation, internal electric field, and impurity scattering, optical Aharonov-Bohm oscillations of an electron-hole pair become modulated. Additionally, provided that a strongly correlated exciton pair is formed in a single quantum ring similar to the Wigner molecule, novel oscillations can be observed for increasing magnetic field. In this case, the biexciton emission energy changes abruptly at transition magnetic fields with a fractional oscillation period compared to that of the exciton, the so-called fractional optical Aharonov-Bohm oscillations.
