Energy Transfer and Relaxation by Dressed Photons

  • Motoichi OhtsuEmail author
Part of the Nano-Optics and Nanophotonics book series (NON)


This chapter describes the energy transfer and subsequent relaxation between closely spaced nanomaterials, mediated by dressed photons. These phenomena are used for realizing nanometer-sized photonic devices (DP devices), to be reviewed in Chap.  5. As an example of the nanomaterial, a semiconductor quantum dot (QD) is adopted in the following discussions.
