Photoexcitation on core-shell quantum dot is transfered to surface adsorbed porphyrin dye via Foerster mechanism. Reduced density matrix time propagation based on ab-initio data show that phonon-induced relaxation of an excitation controls direction and irreversibility of the transfer on nanosecond time scale. The results are potentially applicable to improvennt of photodynamic therapy.
