Özet

Polarization properties of the fluorescence from a pair of identical molecules coupled electronically are examined on the basis of a stochastic Liouville equation formalism developed in 1979 by Rahman, Knox and Kenkre. The time development of polarization is calculated for random ensembles of rigid molecule pairs under initial conditions that represent either selective excitation or broad-band coherent excitation. We hold that the applicability of the Forster mechanism is not limited to cases of weak coupling, and we indicate the rationale and a method for observing it in cases involving large interaction between transition dipoles.
