Abstract

Optical absorption in a C60 molecule is calculated within a one-electron tight-binding model. It is seen that it is necessary to include non-zero second-neighbor hopping in order to explain the experimental absorption spectrum. Thus, the second-neighbor hopping plays a stronger role in C60 than in linear conjugated polymers.
