Abstract

Upconverted lasing in the nonlinear, two-photon absorption regime has been demonstrated, for the first time to the best of our knowledge in colloidal nanocrystal quantum dots (NQDs). Upon pulse excitation at subbandgap photon energies the radiative recombination of excitons in close-packed CdSe/CdS/ZnS core-shell NQDs was found to be sufficiently fast to compete with the intrinsic nonradiative Auger recombination, as confirmed by the presence of a fast decay (7ps) in the time-resolved photoluminescence.
