AbstractSemiconductor nanoparticles of cadmium chalcogenides are known to exhibit pronounced thickness-dependent $E_0$ series of exciton transitions at the $Gamma$ point of the Brillouin zone (BZ). In this work, we report an experimental evidence for high-energy series of exciton transitions, which originates from BZ points different from the $Gamma$ point, in the family of cadmium chalcogenide quasi-2D nanoplatelets (NPLs). Intensive UV absorption bands demonstrating a pronounced size effect are observed for CdTe, CdSe, and CdS NPLs in addition to the $E_0$ exciton bands in the visible region. These new bands are attributed to transitions analogous to the $E_1$, $E_1+Delta_1$, and $E_2$ series observed in bulk crystals. First-principles DFT calculations of the electronic structure and absorption spectra support this explanation and show that the main contribution to these optical transitions comes from $X$ and $M$ points of the 2D BZ, which originate from $L$ and $X$ points of the 3D BZ. At the same time, the $E_0$ series of transitions at the $Gamma$ point is well described by the multiband effective-mass model. The observation of the UV exciton bands reveals tunable optical properties of cadmium chalcogenide NPLs in UV spectral region, which may be interesting for practical applications.
