Organic materials, with their superior photoluminescence and absorbance properties have revolutionized the technologies for displays and solar energy conversion. Due to the large transition dipoles, the localization of excited states or excitons in organic materials necessitates optical models that extend beyond classical far field methods. In this thesis we propose an extended near field calculation method using dyadic Green's functions and demonstrate the applications of both our extended model and traditional far field models for different types of devices such as surface plasmon detectors, cavity organic light emitting devices and organic photovoltaics with external antennas.
