The theory of energy transfer between a donor molecule and an acceptor molecule near a solid state particle is developed. The particle is modeled as a spheroidal shape and the molecules are allowed to be at arbitrary positions in space. It is found that there exist zones of activity in which the molecules display significantly enhanced energy transfer. We develop a formalism which allows us to describe nonradiative and radiative decay and energy transfer in a unified manner.
