The electronic states and coupling effect in the laterally stacked symmetric and asymmetric quantum-dot-molecules (QDMs) are studied. The formed potential of QDM is approximated with parabolic and modified Pöschel-Teller (MPT) potentials. It is shown that the coupling criterion of quantum dots (QDs) is the energy levels split due to the tunneling effect. In the case of the asymmetric QDM the electron relocalization step-like behavior is revealed, while in the symmetric case it is principally impossible. The obtained results for parabolic and modified Pöschel-Teller potential confinements are compared. The formation of energy levels split for a given range of values of energy (coupling criterion) as a consequence of the finiteness of the confinement potential is revealed for the case of modified Pöschel-Teller potential approximation.
