Which test illustrates SHG calculation in Dalton

Post by xiongyan21 » 14 Feb 2020, 04:53

I wish to calculate SHG, Kerr effect, etc. of organic molecules, especially trying to find those exhibited by pesticides, but I am not familiar with the related inputs in DALTON.
Could you please tell me which test in Dalton illustrates them?


Very Best Regards!

For SCF and MCSCF there is rsp_2ndharm and I suggest that you also take a look at section 30.1.4 in the manual. For CC there is cc_rsp_betafreq and cc_rsp_betafreq2, and the relevant section in the manual is 32.4.
