A study was performed on the exciton capture by nanocrystals in a polymer matrix. The Joule energy losses in the nanocrystal induced by an external oscillating dipole were used to calculate the transition probability. It was found that high efficiency of capture and high quantum yield of light emission were achieved by using polymers with high exciton diffusion length.
