  • Optical second-harmonic generation and the related technique of infrared – visible light sum-frequency generation are extremely versatile tools for studies of many kinds of surfaces and interfaces. With the help of ultra-short laser pulses, they can be used to monitor surface dynamics and reactions with sub-picosecond time resolution.
