Long-range electronic-to-vibrational energy transfer from nanocrystals to their surrounding matrix environment.

Abstract

A radiationless transition process of long-range, resonance interconversion of electronic-to-vibrational energy transfer (EVET) is discovered between the band-gap excitation of nanocrystal quantum dots to matrix vibrational overtone modes using fluorescence lifetime measurements. A theoretical analysis based on long-range dipole-dipole nonadiabatic… (More)
