In this paper we consider electromagnetic field quantization in the presence of a dispersive and absorbing semiconductor quantum dot. By using macroscopic approach and Green's function method, quantization of electromagnetic field is investigated. Interaction of a two-level atom , which is doped in a semiconductor quantum dot, with the quantized field is considered and its spontaneous emission rate is calculated. Comparing with the same condition for an excited atom inside the bulk, it is shown that the spontaneous emission rate of an atom will decrease.
