Second-harmonic imaging in the scanning optical microscope

  • J. N. Gannaway
  • C. J. R. Sheppard


A scanning optical microscope in which an image is produced from the generation of optical second harmonics within the specimen has been constructed. Pictures have been obtained from various crystals which show high contrast levels and detail not visible with the conventional microscope.
