The energy spectra of an electron in open spherical quantum dot (QD) within the effective mass approximation (EMA) and rectangular potential model is presented. Energy structure of quantum dots is important because of their possible applications in electronic and optoelectronic devices. For proper description and interpretation of tunneling processes knowledge of resonant states of quantum dots is necessary. Energy values depend on parameter like size of system and spatial composition. The lifetimes of the quasistationary states are computed within the framework of the scattering S-matrix method. It is shown how core radius and barrier thickness for the CdTe/ZnTe/CdTe example influence electron states and their lifetimes.
