Paper Abstract

We review the nonlinear optical properties and their dynamics for CuCl nanocrystallites, embedded in a borosilicate glass matrix. Because of the high exciton binding energy of this compound, elementary electronical excitations are always in the weak confinement regime. In this limit, the optical properties of the quantum dots and their dynamics are essentially described by those of the bulk material. One has to consider, however, that the lack of translational invariance modifies the selection rules of optical transitions and hinders a classification in terms of longitudinal and transverse excitons.
