Abstract

Enhancement of the spontaneous decay rate due to local-field effects is estimated for a luminous dipole inside a small dielectric particle. To do this, we make use of an idea on multiplicativity of the local-field factor. Elongated particles are shown to be promising in respect of the local-field enhancement of the spontaneous emission. Computations are carried out within the framework of modern theory of the spontaneous decay of excited atoms in absorbing media for both the virtual-cavity and real-cavity models. Particular emphasis is placed on dielectric/semiconductor particles in the vicinity of the optical phonon frequencies.
