Abstract

In this work, we report on an experimental investigation of the nonlinear optical properties near the first electronic resonance of thiol-capped CdTe quantum dots (QDs) being in the strong confinement regime. Using a cw laser excitation in a Z-scan experimental setup, we show the presence of saturated Kerr-type nonlinear optical properties of the QDs, at low intensity levels. The large optical nonlinearity and the control of the linear and nonlinear optical properties by the size of the QDs are of special interest for applications in integrated nanophotonic devices.
