In this review the authors describe some of the advances in the quantum electrodynamical formulation of theory for molecular photonics. Earlier work has been extended and reformulated for application to real dispersive media—as reflected in the new treatment of refractive, dissipative, and resonance properties. Applications of the new theory have revealed new quantum optical features in two quite different aspects of the familiar process of second harmonic generation, one operating through local coherence within small particles and the other, a coherence between the quantum amplitudes for fundamental and harmonic excitation. Where the salient experiments have been performed, they exactly match the theoretical predictions.
