Using optical modulation spectroscopy, we report the direct observation of absorption lines from excitons localized in GaAs single quantum dot potentials. The data provide a measurement of the linewidth, resonance energy, and oscillator strength of the transitions, and show that states which decay primarily by nonradiative processes can be directly probed using this technique. The experiments establish this technique for the characterization of single quantum dot transitions, thereby
