Dynamics of the dispersion interaction in an energy transfer system

Author affiliations

Abstract

On the propagation of resonant radiation through an optically dense system, photon capture is commonly followed by one or more near-field transfers of the resulting optical excitation. The process invokes secondary changes to the local electronic environment, shifting the electromagnetic interactions between participant chromophores and producing modified intermolecular forces. From the theory it emerges that energy transfer, when it occurs between chromophores with electronically dissimilar properties, can itself generate significant changes in the intermolecular potentials. This report highlights specific effects that can be anticipated when laser light propagates across an interface between differentially absorbing components in a model energy transfer system.
