We report unusual excitonic absorption spectra with dip-shaped structures caused by exciton–biexciton coherent interactions in quantum dots. The exciton absorption spectrum is measured with the micro-photoluminescence excitation technique in a single InGaAs quantum dot. The spectrum changes from Lorenztian-shaped to dip-shaped with increasing excitation intensity. A theoretical analysis with the density matrix method reveals that exciton–biexciton coherent interactions create dressed states in the exciton–biexciton system and lead to the unusual absorption spectra.

    ZnS quantum dots are synthesized by a high-temperature chemical route with narrow size distribution at diameters of 1.4 and 1.8 nm. Significantly small size dispersion of 1.4-nm-sized ZnS quantum dots is vivid from the transmission electron microscopic measurements. The nonlinear absorption is...
