Abstract
Aggregates of interacting molecules can exhibit electronically excited states that are coherently delocalized over many molecules. This can lead to a strong enhancement of the fluorescence decay rate which is referred to as superradiance (SR). To date, the temperature dependence of SR is described by a 1/T law. Using an epitaxial dye layer and a Frenkel-exciton based model we provide both experimental and theoretical evidence that significant deviations from the 1/T behavior can occur for brick-wall-type aggregates of finite size leading even to a maximum of the SR at finite temperature. This is due to the presence of low energy excitations of weak or zero transition strength. These findings are relevant for designing light-emitting molecular materials.
