New infrared materials incorporating non-radiative energy transfer Conference Paper uri icon


  • We apply a recently developed model for non-radiative energy transfer in correlated systems to recently published data on energy transfer in garnets. We show that even in well-studied materials in which the analysis of the data appears straight forward, subtle deviations from theory and difficulty in quantitatively evaluating interaction parameters may be due to a non- random distribution of donors and acceptors in the crystal.
