In this work we study the ultrafast exciton dynamics in CdTe nanorods by using two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy (2DES). By simultaneously exciting the lowest three excitonic transitions (i.e. S1, S2 and S3) we extract the electron and hole relaxation pathways, owing to the combined temporal and spectral resolution of 2DES. In particular, we directly observe hot hole relaxation from the second to the first exciton state in about 30 fs by excitation of the S2 transition. Additionally, we extract a direct charge relaxation to S1 by disentangling the overlapping bleach and excited state induced energy level shifts after excitation of S3.
