An ordered set of dipoles with mutual interaction in the close vicinity of a dielectric surface is studied. The solution of that particular theoretical problem is given rigorously both for the static and dynamic case. It can serve as a description of the polysylane molecules formed at the surface of silicon by means of HOMOCVD or sputtering in a hydrogen atmosphere. The theory can be used to describe the optical behaviour of those molecules, like first the Rayleigh scattering and next also the photoluminescence of those molecules.
