Abstract:

The effect of electromagnetic reaction to relaxation of a molecule adsorbed on a rough surface is considered. We include the reaction fields due to the system dipole relaxing by both photon radiation and decay to delocalized surface plasmon damping is shown to be important for both small and large-sized roughness features. Keywords Molecular relaxation, Absorption.
