Experimental and simulation study of the wavelength dependent second harmonic generation of collagen in scattering tissues.

Abstract

We report on the wavelength dependence of second harmonic generation (SHG) of collagen in scattering tissues over the wavelength range of 800-1200 nm. The study incorporates inclusion of the molecular hyperpolarizability β of collagen and optical scattering, both of which are wavelength dependent. Using 3D SHG imaging and Monte Carlo simulations, we find… (More)
