Simulation and estimation of normal dispersion phenomenon in an acentric organic crystal (NPP) by the quantum photonic approach

In this paper, we present a nano-quantum photonic approach for the calculation of normal dispersion phenomena in organic crystals such as N-(4-nitrophenyl)-L-prolinol(NPP). We assume that a laser beam consists of a flow of energetic particles that interact with the distorted p-electron system. We approximate the distorted p-electron cloud by an ellipse to simplify calculations. By the precise analysis of photon interaction with the p-electron system of benzene ring in the NPP crystal, we obtain the refractive index in any wavelength by Monte Carlo simulation. The maximum error between our simulation results and the measurement data is 0.058, which is agreeable.
