We have observed enhanced biexcitonic effect in CdS0.6Se0.4 nanocrystals by means of femtosecond two-photon pump-probe spectroscopy. In contrast to a weak biexcitonic photoinduced absorption in the presence of |1Se1Sh〉 or |1Pe1Ph〉 excitons due to one-photon excitation, we have found a pronounced photoinduced absorption arising from a strong Coulomb coupling between a |1Se1Sh〉 exciton and a two-photon excited |1Se1Ph〉 exciton. We have also theoretically shown that |1Se1Sh;1Se1Ph〉 biexcitons have a large binding energy compared with |1Se1Sh;1Se1Sh〉 and |1Se1Sh;1Pe1Ph〉 biexciton states.
