On the quantum mechanical theory of natural optical activity

  • Dietrich Haase
Original Investigations

Abstract

Optical activity due to the coupling of molecular subunits is discussed in its dependence on various electromagnetic tensor properties of the subunits and on geometrical parameters. Certain approximation aspects of the theory are analyzed. Symmetry rules for dynamic-coupling terms are derived. Origin-dependent tensors are eliminated by referring their components to local frequency-dependent polarizability centers. Kirkwood's reduced first order result is revisited.

Key words
