Abstract

We developed a four-channel photon counting based Stokes-polarimeter for spatial characterization of polarization effects in second harmonic generation (SHG). We have implemented a calibration technique allowing quantitative measurement of polarization parameters, such as the degree of polarization (DOP), degree of linear polarization (DOLP), degree of circular polarization (DOCP), as well as anisotropy from the acquired Stokes parameters. The technique is used as contrast mechanism to characterize the polarization properties from two potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP) micro-crystals and collagen type-I in SHG microscopy.
