    A quantum-transfer-efficiency excitation spectroscopy (QTEES) is developed. It measures the quantum transfer efficiency from the photoexcited level to the initial level of the luminescence measured. It is self-normalized and based on the relative measurement of photoluminescence intensity. The...
