Possibilities offered by 2D visible spectroscopy for the investigation of the properties of excitons in colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals are overviewed, with a particular focus on their ultrafast dynamics. The technique of 2D electronic spectroscopy is illustrated with several examples showing its advantages compared to 1D ultrafast spectroscopic techniques (transient absorption and time-resolved photoluminescence).
