Density-functional-theory study of the electric-field-induced second harmonic generation (EFISHG) of push-pull phenylpolyenes in solution
2006 (English)In: Chemical Physics Letters, ISSN 0009-2614, E-ISSN 1873-4448, Vol. 425, no 4-6, 5593-5603 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Density-functional theory and the polarizable continuum model have been used to calculate the electric-field-induced second harmonic generation of a series of push-pull phenylpolyenes in chloroform solution. The calculations have been performed using both the Becke 3-parameter Lee-Yang-Parr functional and the recently developed Coulomb-attenuated method functional. Solvation has been investigated by examining the effects of the reaction field, non-equilibrium solvation, geometry relaxation, and cavity field. The inclusion of solvent effects leads to significantly better agreement with experimental observations.
