The adiabatic approximation in problems in nonlinear optics

  • 17 Accesses


The frequency dependence in the adiabatic approximation is examined for the third-rank polarizability tensors of a crystal lacking a center of symmetry. These tensors contain electronic, ionic, and mixed terms, the first type being independent of temperature.
