Chapter 1:
Among the great variety of pathways for electronic excitation energy transfor­mation (intersystem crossing, internal conversion, vibrational relaxation, fluores­cence, phosphorescence, external quenching, etc.) the process of nonradiative transfer of electronic excitation energy, referred to herein as energy transfer for the sake of brevity; has attracted special interest on the part of researchers. The essence of this latter process is as follows. When an electronically excited molecule interacts with a nonexcited one, a transfer of a quantum of electronic energy can take place, i.e., the electronic excitation of an acceptor molecule at the expense of the energy of the excited donor. If the acceptor is able to fluoresce or phosphoresce, its sensitized light emission can be registered.
