Here, we demonstrate an unconventional energy transfer with narrow band gap CdTe/PbS quantum dots as donors and broad luminescent wide-band-gap oxide materials as acceptors. As a result, the luminescence of wide band gap materials increases and the enhancement factor follows a linear process for photon conversion as in the case of Forster resonance energy transfer. In addition, the strong anti-reflection effect enabling efficient light harvesting, broad spectral overlapping and strong coupling between quantum dots and oxides are the key processes for the unconventional energy transfer. An enhancement of around similar to 5500% is observed for GeO2/PbS quantum dots which is higher than that reported for the conventional energy transfer process. The findings demonstrate unconventional energy transfer which enables a greater understanding and rational engineering of light harvesting devices and quantum light sources.
