Abstract

Femtosecond studies of energy relaxation and trapping dynamics were performed in three types of quantum-dot systems: semiconductor nanocrystal (NC)/glass composites; ion-implanted NCs; and colloidal NCs. High-sensitivity fs chirp-free transient absorption was applied to directly measure the population/depopulation dynamics of the lowest and the first excited electron states in CdSe NCs of different radii, with 1s-1p energy separation up to 16 longitudinal optical-phonon energies. A fast subps 1p-1s relaxation was observed with the rate enhanced in NCs of smaller radius, indicating the opening of new confinement-enhanced relaxation channels which dominate any phonon-bottleneck effects.
