Abstract

The per sec propability is calculated of the non-radiative annihilation of singlet excitons on triplet excitons in organic molecular cyrstals. The influence of the non-radiative annihilation of singlet excitons on triplet excitons on the quenching of crystal fluorescence caused by the radiative annihilation of singlet excitons is studied theoretically on the basis of formulae derived.
