Microscopic theory of nonlinear optics
2006 (English)In: Nonlinear optical properties of matter: From molecules to condensed phases / [ed] Manthos G. Papadopoulos, Andrzej J. Sadlej, Jerzy Leszczynski., Dordrecht: Springer , 2006, -694 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Non-Linear Optical Properties of Matter: From Molecules to Condensed Phases attempts to draw together both theory and application in this field. As such it will be of interest to both experimentalists and theoreticians alike. Divided into two parts, Part 1 is concerned with the theory and computing of non-linear optical (NLO) properties while Part 2 reviews the latest developments in experimentation.
Part 1: Surveys the current advances in the computation of the NLO properties of molecules, crystalline solids and nano-particles. It examines the methods employed to compute the properties of both microscopic and macroscopic forms of matter.
Part 2: Covers the recent advances on the NLO properties of organometallic compounds, rotaxanes, glasses, Langmuir-Blodget films, gold and silver nano-particles etc. Strategies to develop novel NLO materials are also discussed along with the Hyper-Rayleigh scattering technique.
This book will be invaluable to researchers and students in academia and industry. It will be of particular interest to anyone involved in materials science, theoretical and computational chemistry, chemical physics, and molecular physics.
