In the framework of adiabatic approximation the electronic states and direct interband absorption of light in the asymmetric double quantum dot molecule (QDM) having a shape of Cassini lemniscate revolution are discussed. Analytical expressions for the wave functions and energy spectrum of the electron in the QDM are derived. Nonmonotonic split and step-like behavior of the energy spectrum is revealed due to the possibility of the electron tunneling between quantum dots (QDs) in the molecule. The corresponding selection rules of quantum transitions for the direct interband absorption of light are obtained. The absorption edge characteristics depending on the QDM geometrical sizes are also revealed.
