Abstract

We analyzed the polarization states of second harmonic generation (SHG) signals from starch granules and type I collagen through a four-channel photon counting based Stokes-polarimeter. The 2D SHG images of samples are reconstructed using various polarization parameters, such as the degree of polarization (DOP), the degree of linear polarization (DOLP), the degree of circular polarization (DOCP), as well as the anisotropy from the acquired Stokes parameters. Furthermore, we have demonstrated that the polarization parameters are changes at different input polarizations and focusing depths.
