A scaling law for molecular hyperpolarizabilities is derived and is shown to describe accurately the measured hyperpolarizabilities for an assortment of small atoms and molecules. Scaling laws for third-order susceptibilities are important in guiding efforts to develop better nonlinear-optical materials. Usually these scaling laws are derived by consideration
