Abstract

Optical sectioning is performed by collecting the fluorescent emission of two-exciton states in colloidal quantum dots. The two-exciton state is created by two consecutive resonant absorption events, thus requiring unprecedented low excitation energy and peak powers as low as 105Wcm2. The depth resolution is shown to be equivalent to that of standard multiphoton microscopy, and it was found to deteriorate only slowly as saturation of the two-exciton state is approached, owing to signal contribution from higher excitonic states.
