Many-Body Calculations of Dynamic Polarizability, Refractive Index and Verdet Coefficient


Article Preview

Within the framework of the many-body theory by using the Random Phase Approximation with Exchange (RPAE) method we calculated the frequency dependent polarizability, refractive index, and Verdet coefficient of some atoms. Calculated time-dependent peculiarities of a set of atoms are very significant in the nano-region and might be important for designing new materials.
