Signatures of exciton and two-exciton states in semiconductor systems are investigated experimentally and theoretically. A set of quantum well samples with different well widths is studied using coherent excitation spectroscopy. The experimental results are analyzed using a microscopic model demonstrating the importance of biexciton correlations and disorder effects. Additional numerical investigations of absorption changes in small nanorings are employed to analyze optical transitions from two-exciton to three-exciton resonances.
