Abstract

Direct energy transfer (DET) technique is widely used to study the morphology of heterogeneous media in which the chromophores capable to energy exchange are imbedded. Here, we present a theory of DET at corrugated interfaces, with a special attention to electrified interfaces, particularly the interfaces between two immiscible electrolyte solutions. We show that the dependence of DET-signal on the potential drop across the interface can give valuable information about the interfacial dynamic corrugations and pattern formation on the length scales between 1 and 10 nm.
