Photoinduced blue shifts in CdS colloids have been time resolved by picosecond pump-probe measurements. The blue shift appears within the time domain of the pump pulse (18 ps) and is found to increase with increased pump light intensity. Calculations of the predicted blue shift from a dynamic Burstein-Moss shift agree with the experimental results at the lower laser intensities, but the predicted shifts are greater than observed values at the higher light intensities.
