For more than 50 years, an elegant energy gap (EG) law developed by Englman and Jortner [Mol. Phys. 18, 145 (1970)] has served as a key theory to understand and model the nearly exponential dependence of nonradiative transition rates on the difference of energy between the initial and final states. This work revisits the theory, clarifies the key assumptions involved in the rate expression, and provides a generalization for the cases where the effects of temperature dependence and low-frequency…
