Abstract

This article deals with the consequences of a metal surface on the decay and energy shift of excited molecules, both for the isolated molecular case and for a many molecule system. The simplest type of theory (image theory) already makes the single molecule-metal surface problem analogous to a model system with cooperative properties (Dicke superradiant enhancement of the linewidth and a cooperative Lamb shift).
