Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) and local optical density of states (LDOS) are uncorrelated near an ideal mirror

There is currently an ongoing debate in Nanophotonics whether the famous Förster resonant energy transfer (FRET) rate between a donor and an acceptor depends on the local radiative density of states (LDOS): no [1] or yes [2]. Motivated by the debate we have initiated a study of an exactly solvable analytic model with essential features of nanophotonic energy transfer. Our model has a pair of ideal dipole emitters –donor and acceptor – that exhibit energy transfer (and spontaneous emission) near an ideal mirror, similar to the archetypal nanophotonic “Drexhage” geometry. The mirror is described by a dielectric planar scatterer, whose T matrix and dyadic Green functions are exactly known from scattering theory, even for vectorial Maxwell waves [3, 4].
