Abstract

The frequency-degenerate two-photon absorption (TPA) in glutathione-capped colloidal CdTe quantum dots with a dot radius ranging from 1.5 to 2 nm, which belongs to the regime of very strong quantum confinement, is determined unambiguously by utilizing the Z-scan technique with femtosecond laser pulses. At laser wavelengths between 720 and 950 nm, the TPA cross sections are measured to be of the order of 10 47 10 46 cm 4   s   photon 1 , with precise values depending on both the laser wavelength and the dot size. The TPA measurements are in agreement with theoretical modeling based on a spherical eight-band Pidgen and Brown model. The quantitative modeling reveals underlying factors that contribute to both the TPA–size relationship and size dispersion effects.
