Abstract: The carrier dynamics of lead sulphide quantum dot (PbS QD) drop cast films and closely packed ordered Langmuir-Blodgett films are studied with ultra-fast femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopy. The photo-induced carrier temperature is extracted from transient absorption spectra and monitored as a function of time delay. The cooling dynamics of carriers in PbS QDs suggest a reduction of the carrier energy loss rate at longer time delays through the retardation of the longitudinal optical (LO) phonon decay due to partial heating of acoustic phonon modes. A slowed hot carrier cooling time up to 116 ps is observed in the drop cast film. A faster cooling rate was also observed in the highly compact Langmuir-Blodgett film due to the enhanced carrier-LO phonon coupling strength arising from the Coulombic interaction in neighboring QDs, which is verified by temperature dependent steady state PL measurements.
