Abstract:

Electronic contributions to the optical hyperpolarizabilities of small silicon clusters are theoretically determined. Geometries and the electronic structures of the clusters are established using the tight binding model. The nonlinear polarizabilities are found to depend primarily on the symmetry of the cluster and prove to be high for the low-symmetry clusters. Possible experiments and applications are discussed. jhd
