Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) is a near-field interaction between pairs of quantum emitters. In photonics, FRET can be controlled by structuring the environment surrounding the donor and acceptor. But experiments in optics are challenging due to the weak signals involved and the low spatial resolution. The resonance energy transfer effect is an analog of the effect on the power transferred between two classical dipoles and one of the most effective ways to investigate this effect is to analyze the antenna impedance in the microwave. In this work we consider the classical analogy of the FRET to characterize the effect of the environment.
