We performed time-resolved spectroscopy of ZnO quantum dots (QD), and observed exciton energy transfer and dissipation between QD via an optical near-field interaction. Two different sizes of ZnO QD with resonant energy levels were mixed to test the energy transfer and dissipation using time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy. The estimated energy transfer time was 144 ps. Furthermore, we demonstrated that the ratio of energy transfer between the resonant energy states could be controlled.
