Paper Abstract

Inorganic polymers are characterized by both in-plane it''and out-of-plane it bonding interactions in contrast to organic materials where iteffects dominate the optical properties. Involvement of the it'' bonding system results in higher electronic transition energies with the first transition being a it'' ic process. Second hyperpolarizabiities are affected by both it bonding systems and are reduced by higher transition energies and lower transition probabilities. In this paper we present electronic structure calculations of the static hyperpolarizabilities of a series of model compounds for inorganic polymers to illustrate the relationship between their electronic structure and nonlinear optical properties. 1. 0
