Nonlinear optical properties of cadmium alkanoate composites with CdSe nanoparticles are investigated. The standard Z-scan technique with CW laser (λ = 405 nm) and CW laser with chopper was used for this purpose. The nonlinear characteristics of nanocomposites contained CdSe quantum dots (QDs) of different sized were measured.
