For several years we have been working on the computation of the linear and non-linear optical (L&NLO) properties of organic molecules and on the design/selection of derivatives, which may have applications in the development of photonic devices. There is an intensive effort all over the world to discover the mechanisms and factors, which lead to large NLO properties, which are some of the properties required for materials to be useful in photonic applications. Here we review some of these factors, which lead to interesting or very large NLO properties.
