    The effect of spin sublevel anticrossing in the persistence spectra of triplet excitons was investigated. The anticrossing signal shape was found to change substantially during the excited-state lifetime. The anticrossing signal splits into two peaks, with the separation between them increasing...

    The theory of the dynamics of Frenkel excitons is discussed within the context of transient grating experiments. Our results are based on the stochastic model of Haken and Strobl. We show that the transient grating signal is very sensitive to the nature of the initial state prepared by the...

    We have studied experimentally the excitation of propagating spin-wave modes of a microscopic Permalloy-film waveguide by a stripe antenna. We show that due to the strong quantization of the spin-wave spectrum, the excitation of particular modes has essentially different frequency dependencies...

    For triplet excitons in dimers of differently oriented molecules the temperature dependence of the ESR linewidth is calculated analytically. The temperature of the extrema of the linewidth is discussed as a function of the coupling strength between excitons and phonons.

    Recombination dynamics of excitons in nearly strain-free Al[SUB1-x]In[SUBx]N alloys on the GaN template were studied.

    Radiative and nonradiative lifetimes of bound excitons in GaSe with various binding energies are measured by the magnetooptical method using time-resolution spectroscopy. It is shown that both the radiative and nonradiative lifetimes of an exciton bound at an ionized center increase with the...

    In this work, we analyze modified bowtie nanoantennas with polynomial sides in the excitation and emission regimes. In the excitation regime, the antennas are illuminated by an incident plane wave, and in the emission regime, the excitation is fulfilled by infinitesimal electric dipole...
