We study the exciton fine structure in quantum dots of multivalley lead chalcogenides. We demonstrate that intervalley electron–hole exchange interaction, ignored in previous studies, dramatically modifies the exciton fine structure and leads to appearance of the ultrabright valley-symmetric spin-triplet exciton state dominating interband optical absorption. Valley mixing leads to brightening of other symmetry-allowed spin-triplet states which dominate low-temperature photoluminescence.
