Excitonic interactions in 2D semiconductors garner considerable attention, both due to their relevance in quantum opto-electronics and to the richness of their physics. Quantum-well like derivatives of organicinorganic perovskites are emerging material systems where strongly bound two-dimensional excitons have been observed even at room temperature. Here, we identify and quantify the photophysical factors that govern the multi-body interactions in phenylethylammonium lead iodide, a prototypical 2D perovskite. Employing high-sensitivity coherent non-linear spectroscopy, we measure the homogenous linewidth of multiple excitonic transitions1. By following the evolution of the linewidths with temperature and excitation density, we obtain pertinent insights into the exciton-phonon and exciton-exciton interactions. Based on our recent work2-4, we also argue that polaronic effects are manifested intrinsically in the exciton spectral structure and point to the apparently deterministic role of polaronic effects in excitonic properties.
