Paper Abstract

A molecular approach to optical rectification (OR) via the imaginary part of the second-order susceptibility related to electric dipole interaction with the radiation field is presented. A general quantum-mechanical expression for the frequency dependence of the effect is obtained, its properties are discussed and its magnitude is estimated in absorption bands of a three-level model.
