Time-resolved photoluminescence spectra of biexcitons in CuCl quantum dots embedded in NaCl matrix have been measured by two configurations of optical Kerr gate method. As for a backward configuration, a transition from spontaneous to stimulated emission is observed with increase in the excitation density. On the other hand, by a configuration collecting signals from the edge of the sample in the direction of the excitation length, an essential change in the time profile of biexciton luminescence from a conventionally exponential to a pulse-shaped according to the increasing excitation density reasonably suggests a shift from spontaneous emission to superfluorescence of biexciton luminescence.
