Atomic dipole polarizabilities from the uncoupled Hartree-Fock approximation

Abstract

Electric dipole polarizabilities are computed for a large number of 2-, 3-, 4-, 10-, 11-, 12-, 18-, 19-, and 20- electron atoms and ions. These results are all obtained within the framework of the uncoupled Hartree-Fock approximation. All calculations are made using analytical Hartree-Fock wave functions. For the lighter atoms and positive ions the results of these calculations are in fairly good agreement with the experimental and other more accurate theoretical values. However, for the heavier atoms and ions the results are too large. It is also found that great care must be exerted in selecting self-consistent functions for use in making polar-izability calculations. © 1964 The American Physical Society.
