Abstract

Optical two-dimensional Fourier transform (2DFT) spectroscopy has been developed over the last decade as a powerful tool for studying a variety of physical systems, ranging from atoms to molecules to solids. This review covers our use of 2DFT spectroscopy to study exciton dynamics in semiconductor nanostructures. In quantum wells, 2DFT spectroscopy confirms the importance of many-body contributions to the coherent optical response and reveals nonradiative double-quantum and Raman coherences. For natural quantum dots, 2DFT spectroscopy enables ensemble measurements of the homogeneous linewidth, including the temperature and density dependence. Relaxation from quantum well states into the quantum dots can also be studied using 2DFT spectroscopy.
