We develop novel calculation and analysis methods for the dynamic first hyperpolarizabilities β [the second-order nonlinear optical (NLO) properties at the molecular level] in the second-harmonic generation based on the quantum master equation method combined with the ab initio molecular orbital (MO) configuration interaction method. As examples, we have evaluated off-resonant dynamic β values of donor (NH2)- and/or acceptor (NO2)-substituted benzenes using these methods, which are shown to reproduce those by the conventional summation-over-states method well. The spatial contributions of electrons to the dynamic β of these systems are also analyzed using the dynamic β density and its partition into the MO contributions. The present results demonstrate the advantage of these methods in unraveling the mechanism of dynamic NLO properties and in building the structure–dynamic NLO property relationships of real molecules.
