Abstract

We have constructed a complete quantum theory for an optical process of excitons with nonlocal susceptibility originating from their center-of-mass motion. This theory provides a practical calculation method for arbitrary-structured nanoscale to macroscale dielectrics where excitons are weakly confined. We obtain good correspondences with underlying theories, semiclassical microscopic nonlocal theory, and QED theories for dispersive and absorptive materials with local susceptibility.
