We study the influence of metallic and dielectric films as well as lamellar multilayered stacks on the emission kinetics of Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) polymer doped with HITC dye at various concentrations. The two factors affecting the emission kinetics are the Purcell enhancement and self-quenching, which is particularly strong at high dye concentrations. Both effects are modified in different ways in the vicinity of metal/dielectric substrates) and appear to interfere with each other. The detailed account of the experimental results and analysis will be presented at the conference.
