Abstract

Several experiments on surface second-harmonic generation are presented to show how the contribution from a transparent substrate can interfere with that from an adsorbate monolayer. The interference depends on the relative phase of the two contributions, which varies with the molecular orientation, the laser frequency, the polarization, and the optical geometry.
