Concentrational changes of the fluorescence quantum yield and emission anisotropy were measured for rhodamine 6G (donor) in the presence of malachite green (acceptor) in glycerin—alcohol solutions, excited in the anti-Stokes and Stokes regions. Reduction of the nonradiative energy transfer efficiency in the case of anti-Stokes excitation was observed. The results of measurements proved to be in good agreement with the theory [10] which allows for a multistep mechanism from donor to acceptor energy transfer for Stokes as well as anti-Stokes excitation. However, in the latter case this agreement could have been obtained for a clearly lower value of the absolute donor fluorescence yield.
