It is shown here how the semiclassical theory of electrical susceptibility can be extended to the case in which both radiation and matter are quantized. This is done specifically for the cases of linear and second order susceptibilities. The expressions derived allow to determine a set of conditions for the validity of the semiclassical approximation and predict interesting new phenomena such as photon number dependent susceptibility.

TLDR
In this method, non-linear susceptibility tensors are introduced which relate the induced dipole moment to a power series expansion in field strengths and the various experimental observations are described and interpreted in terms of this formalism.

A and V

I and i

TLDR
There is, I think, something ethereal about i —the square root of minus one, which seems an odd beast at that time—an intruder hovering on the edge of reality.
