An extended Foerster-Dexter model for correlated donor-acceptor placement in solid state materials Academic Article uri icon


  • The current theory of donor‐acceptor interactions in solid‐state materials is based on a random distribution of donors and acceptors through the crystal. In this paper, we present a model to calculate the observable transfer rates for the correlated positioning of donors and acceptors in laser materials. Chemical effects leading to such correlations are discussed.
