Paper Abstract

Nonlinear microscopy may be broadly divided into two classes, the first involving resonant multi-photon absorption, and the second involving non-resonant multi-harmonic generation (MHG). We present here the general theory behind MHG microscopy, with emphasis on nonlinear scattering cross-sections, and radiation powers and angular distributions. We also illustrate some specific applications of 2HG microscopy in membrane imaging.
