In this work we demonstrate a novel experimental approach to the study of single photon correlations. The introduction of the multichannel detection setup enables the simultaneous measurement of a large number of correlation functions for photons emitted from different energetic ranges. The advantages of this new approach were exploited in a detailed study of the biexciton-exciton recombination cascade in CdTe/ZnTe quantum dots doped with a few Mn2+ ions. The information about the dynamics of the magnetic system in the quantum dot during the lifetime of the exciton was obtained from the analysis of the correlation functions.
