In this paper a multiscale hybrid model for evaluation of the collective magnetooptical response of semiconductor nano-object systems is presented. The model is based on a modification of the discrete dipole approximation and can efficiently describe the response from systems of arbitrary-shaped nano-objects embedded into a host semiconductor. The approach requires a simultaneous multiscale electrodynamic and quantum mechanical description. As an example of the model implementation, simulation of the magneto-ellipsometry of a layer of embedded semiconductor triple quantum dot molecules was performed. It was demonstrated that the model can be used to reproduce from conventional ellipsometric data important information on the quantum mechanics of the semiconductor nano-objects.
