Relation between Light-scattering Cross-sections and the Nonlinear Optical Susceptibilities of Liquids and Solids
We establish the theoretical connection between the light scattering spectrum of a medium and its (third-order) nonlinear optical susceptibility. This connection is used to obtain the nonlinear susceptibility spectra.
