Second-order susceptibility from a tight-binding Hamiltonian Academic Article uri icon


  • Using a new formalism that modifies a tight-binding Hamiltonian to include interaction with a time-dependent electromagnetic field, we have obtained an analytical expression for the second-order susceptibility. This expression has been used to calculate the energy dependence of (Formula presented) for GaAs. The results are in agreement with previous calculations and with available experimental data. © 1998 The American Physical Society.
