Abstract

A method that enables the determination of quadratic response molecular properties of heterogeneously solvated molecules is presented. The method describes the situation where a solvated molecule is located on a metallic surface. It is demonstrated that the two-photon matrix elements and the frequency-dependent hyperpolarizabilities for a heterogeneously solvated CO molecule depend on the distance to the metal surface and the dielectric constant of the solvent.
