    Abstract:
    The performance of the optimized effective potential procedure for exact exchange in calculating static electric-field response properties of push-pull π -conjugated systems has been studied, with an emphasis on N O2 - (CH=CH)n -N H2 chains. Good agreement with Hartree-Fock dipole moments and (hyper)polarizabilities is obtained; particularly noteworthy is the chain length dependence for Βn. Thus, the problem that conventional density-functional theory functionals dramatically overestimate these properties is largely solved, although there remains a significant correlation contribution that cannot be accounted for with current correlation functionals. © 2005 American Institute of Physics.
