Distortion of molecules in intense electric fields

Abstract

The static polarizability behavior of the ground-state CO molecule is obtained by ab initio calculations. Single-configuration electronic wave functions are computed using a Hamiltonian which includes the interaction with an external electric field. At fields which approach ionization the polarizability increases markedly, by at least 30%, and cannot be adequately described by the usual multipole expansion. © 1968 The American Physical Society.
