Origin invariant approaches to the calculation of two-photon circular dichroism

By Antonio Rizzo, Branislav Jansik, Thomas Pedersen and Hans Agren


The origin dependence of the expression of two-photon circular dichroism in the length formulation employed by the authors in a recent computational study [B. Jansik , Chem. Phys. Lett. 414, 461 (2005)] is discussed in detail, and some inherently origin invariant alternative formulations are introduced. Extensive computational tests on a small reference chiral system, namely, a chiral form of H2O2, are performed at the density functional theory (DFT)/B3LYP level of theory with large diffuse correlation consistent basis sets. The results indicate that the velocity formulation originally proposed by Tinoco, Jr. [J. Chem. Phys. 62, 1006 (1975)] provides the most convenient approach for an origin invariant calculation of two-photon circular dichroism. (c) 2006 American Institute of Physics
