Nanoscopic Study of Second-Harmonic Generation in Organic Crystals with Collection-Mode Near-Field Scanning Optical Microscopy
Collection-mode near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) is used to map nanoscopic second-harmonic generation (SHG) in N-(4-nitrophenyl)-(L)-prolinol crystals. A spatial resolution of 98 nm is achieved. Near-field polarization-dependent SHG measurement is performed, and a local effective SHG susceptibility of 224 ± 18 pm/V is obtained. © 2001 Optical Society of America.
