Abstract

A novel noninvasive second-harmonic-generation tomographic method of mapping the structure of animal tissues by use of 100-fs laser pulses at 625  nm is described. Subsurface structures were measured with this approach, which is potentially a symmetry-sensitive tool for optical histological reconstruction.
