Abstract

Nondegenerate four-wave mixing is analyzed with respect to biexcitonic contributions in the third-order nonlinear susceptibility x(3) . The presence of biexcitons causes a distinct asymmetry in the frequency dependence of self-diffraction. By measurement of the dependence of the intensity of the self-diffracted signal on detuning between the two incident laser beams, the biexciton binding energy is determined to be EXX=7.8 meV for cadmium sulfur quantum dots of R=7.5 nm embedded in glass. Thus, even for weakly confined II–VI quantum dots with R~2.7aB , a confinement-induced enhancement of EXX was found.
