Intraband hole relaxation of colloidal tellurium (Te) doped CdSe quantum dots is studied using state selective transient absorption spectroscopy. The dots are excited at the band edge and the defect band bleach caused by state filling of the hole is probed. Close to the defect energy the hole relaxation is substantially slowed down, indicating a gap separating the defect state from the $CdSe$ band edge. A clear dependence of the relaxation time with the QD's size is presented, implying that the hole relaxation is mediated by longitudinal-optical (LO) phonon modes of the CdSe host. In addition, we find that over-coating the quantum dots by two monolayers of a ZnS shell, extends the hole relaxation time by a factor of two, suggesting a combined effect of LO-phonons and surface effects governing intraband hole relaxation.
