By systematically controlling the degree of TLS positional disorder, a perfectly crystalline, glassy or a combination of the two environments is obtained. The chromophore is assumed to interact with TLSs via long-range dipole–dipole coupling. At long times and in the absence of disorder, Gaussian line shapes are found, which morph into Lorentzian for a completely disordered environment owing to strong coupling between the chromophore and a TLS in close vicinity.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/79639
