Intermolecular Radiationless Electronic Excitation Energy Transfer Near A Conductive Film

  • T. M. Chmereva
  • M. G. Kucherenko

Based on the developed mathematical model, the radiationless electronic excitation energy transfer by surface plasmons between molecules adsorbed on a conductive film is investigated. A dependence of the rate of energy transfer on the geometrical system parameters is established. It is demonstrated that the presence of the plasmon channel increases up to two orders of magnitude the probability of energy transfer in comparison with the direct dipole-dipole interaction between the donor and acceptor spaced at the same distance in vacuum.
