We have fabricated PbS particles in glass of average size from 1.2 nm to 3 nm. This allows us to tune the energy of the lowest electron-hole pair transition from 1.7 eV to 0.8 eV respectively. Optical absorption spectra show a pronounced quantum peak, implying a narrow size distribution. We have performed pump-probe spectroscopy where the probe is cw and the pump is nanosecond; this allows us to investigate a wide time scale. We have observed bleaching of the lowest quantum peak with lifetimes of ∼2 microseconds. We interpret this in terms of trapped carriers. Phenomenological description of observed effect is also presented.
