I Hyperpolarizability and second order susceptibility

  1. May 11, 2016 #1
    Hello everybody,

    My question is about nonlinear optic in both macroscopic and microscopic point of view.

    What is the relationship between second order susceptibility tensor [itex]\chi^{(2)}[/itex] and the first hyperpolarizability tensor [itex]\beta[/itex] ?

    Thank you everybody.
