Effective mass models with screened pair interaction give reasonable energies for excitons in T-shaped wires provided the effects of complex geometry are included. A sizable shift between exciton states in wells and T-shaped wires occurs due to enhancement in binding energy, confinement in the wires, and interwire coupling.
