We derive a quantum-kinetic description of phonon-assisted Förster transfer between two coupled quantum dots (a quantum dot molecule). We show that the exciton state decays to the ground state of the quantum dot molecule via a combination of the Rabi rotation and exponential decay. For moderately spaced dots this process takes place on a picosecond timescale.
