A discussion of two-photon circular dichroism due to dissymmetrically placed chromophores is presented. Using quantum electrodynamics, expressions are derived for the differential rates or absorption associated with an electronic transition which is electric dipole forbidden to a one-photon interaction. A complex field formulation enables effective interaction operators to be derived which are formally equivalent to those arising in the theory of induced circular dichroism. For non-equivalent chromophores, it is shown that a coupling mechanism provides the necessary chiral discrimination, whilst for equivalent chromophores there is an additional contribution from an interference term which becomes more important as the chromophore separation is decreased.
