We develop a versatile theoretical framework for the study of fluorescence resonant energy transfer ~FRET, or Förster transfer ! in complex environments, under arbitrary illumination, including optical near fields. By combining the field-susceptibility formalism with the optical Bloch equations method, we derive general equations for the computation of the… (More)
