Abstract

The measurement of the second order nonlinear optical properties and orientation of collagen fibers in biological tissues using polarization modulation and phase sensitive detection was presented. An electro-optica modulator was employed to perform the polarization modulation technique. The results showed that second harmonic generation (SHG) from collagen were depended on light polarization. The polarization dependence of SHG in collagen was also described using a mathematical model.
