Abstract

The problem of molecular fluorescence in the vicinity of a gradient-index medium is studied theoretically through classical modeling of a radiating dipole. A previously developed formulation involving the Green dyadic for an inhomogeneous medium is applied to the present problem. Normalized lifetimes for the admolecules are calculated and compared with those for a homogeneous medium. The results are illustrated by numerical examples assuming certain simple forms for the index profile.
