Nonlinear polarimetry

Nonlinear polarimetry
pTHG imaging of kidney stone fragments. Scale bars, 10 µm.

Polarization-resolved multiphoton microscopy (nonlinear polarimetry) provides submicron information on organized samples.

We develop P-SHG to probe collagen macromolecular organization, and P-THG to probe ordered lipids and biominerals.
