We present a theoretical study of the influence of a single spherical metal nanoparticle (MNP) on the fluorescence intensity of nearby emitters with two-level and multi-level energy systems. The enhancement factors of the excitation and relaxation processes are deduced. To reveal the interrelationship between the excitation and relaxation processes we adopt… CONTINUE READING
