Abstract:

The spontaneous decay rate and resonance fluorescence spectrum of a molecule adsorbed near a rough silver surface are calculated. An assumed random distribution of the roughness on the surface is treated as an effective layer. The calculated decay rate is in excellent agreement with experimental measurements. The effects of surface roughness on both the spontaneous decay rate and resonance fluorescence spectrum are discussed for different cases. Keywords Spontaneous decay Resonance fluorescence Admolecule Near silver surface Random roughness.
