We have studied energy transfer and photoluminescence in donor and acceptor quantum dots embedded in a nonlinear photonic crystal. The quantum dots are interacting with each other via the dipole-dipole interaction. The nonlinear photonic crystal modifies the dielectric constant of the hybrid system. Using the density matrix method, it is found that the energy transfer and photoluminescence in the donor quantum dot can be controlled by a pump field due to the nonlinearity of the photonic crystal. Additionally, our theoretical calculations agree with recent experiments. This hybrid system can be used to fabricate ultrafast switching and sensing nanodevices.
