We have studied direct creation processes of confined biexcitons in CuCl quantum dots by polarization-dependent resonant two-photon excitation spectroscopy. The two-photon absorption band for the lowest state of the biexciton (total angular momentum J=0) which appears on the lower energy side of confined exciton band was identified from the analysis of the polarization dependence of the photoluminescence excitation spectrum of the biexciton. Furthermore, the two-photon excitation process for the excited state of the biexciton (J=2) was also found with polarization dependence different from the J=0 biexciton state.
