Using the quantum electrodynamics method, we present the resonance excitation transfer matrix element in the vicinity of a dielectric surface. Depending on the geometry and orientations of two dipoles, our results show that the excitation transfer can be suppressed or enhanced by the presence of the dielectric surface in comparison to that of the free space. Both near-zone and wave-zone limits are discussed.
