  • This article is an embarrassing hodgepodge of experimental minutiae (like the discussion of concentration dependence) and a woefully incomplete theoretical description of the molecular mechanism. Given the increasing popularity of Förster resonance energy transfer this could use a bump up the priority scale. There are quite a few resources out there at the introductory level, e.g. [1] AcidFlask (talk) 20:02, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Table 2 is referred to in the text but seems to be missing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Thasaidon (talkcontribs) 17:20, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
  • It seems to me that the two images in this article are scans of pages out of text books. Having looked at the licensing, they appear to have been published by the copy write holders, i.e. the authors of the respective text books. This seems highly unlikely to me and the summaries are uninformative. It appears they have been cropped from screen shots taken on Google books and published them as their own work with the GNU licence which is incorrect. JHobbs103 (talk) 21:40, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
  • The references are not formatted correctly using citation templates intended for text books or papers and are uninformative as a result. The third and fourth references don't seems to be in the correct places in the article either.JHobbs103 (talk) 17:38, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
  • The section "Coulomb interaction" is taken more or less word by word from D. Bimberg, Semiconductor Nanostructures, page 193, this is a copyright violation! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:42, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

Foerster couplingFörster coupling — T. Förster was german and therefore he is written with ö not oe. Currently Förster coupling is a redirect to Foerster coupling. Förster resonance energy transfer for example has the correct name (and is linked from Foerster... of course). RoB (talk) 10:51, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

  • According to the above Google book shot it appears the article is named incorrectly - it should be "Förster coupling". JHobbs103 (talk) 21:40, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Support - A quick look on ADS suggests that Förster is the more common usage: see [2]. Scog (talk) 08:04, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Support more common usage, which appears to be "Förster coupling" Erudy (talk) 14:34, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
