Abstract
A unified theory of plasmon-assisted resonance energy transfer (RET) between molecules near a metal nanostructure is developed that maintains energy balance between transfer, dissipation, and radiation. It is shown that in a wide range of parameters, including in the near field, RET is dominated by plasmon-enhanced radiative transfer (PERT) rather than by a nonradiative transfer mechanism. The numerical calculations performed for molecules near the Ag nanoparticle indicate that RET magnitude is highly sensitive to molecules' positions.
