Abstract In summary, CdTe nanocluster, CdTe QD with different emissions can be synthesized by carefully controlling the synthetic parameters. We observed that the non-emitting nanocluster exhibits distinguishable extinction at 446 nm. The two photon studies reveal that the two photon absorption of cluster sample is slightly higher than the QD samples. We speculate that most of the absorbed energy was transferred to phonon vibration and localized heat which may be used in wide range of applications. In order to fully understand the energy dissipation/conservation in cluster, ongoing studies such as the 2PA cross-section as a function of excitation wavelength can be proposed.
