Abstract

It is shown that the Quantum Mechanical phenomenon of the modification of a molecule's transition rate (and therefore its quantum efficiency) by the environment it is immersed in has a classical Maxwellian analog. A classical "fluorescent molecule" is constructed as a computational model at a node of the Finite Diference Time Domain grid that resonantly absorbs a quantum of energy from a passing Maxwellian wave and stores it for a predetermined period of time before re-emitting it. Then the presence of a material structure in the neighborhood of this molecule (e.g. a short circuit at a fixed distance from the molecule) alters the rate at which the re-emitting occurs by altering the local impedance of the space around the molecule.
