Abstract
In minimally destructive SHG biomedical imaging (high resolution optical slicing) is greatly desirable to extract the maximum of information from the light matter interaction. Here we develop a 3-D biophysical model and a methodology, which extracts molecular information below the experimental resolution limit. Firstly, it provides the pitch angle (SHG effective orientation) of the SHG source helix of the sample. This information is used to characterize and categorize the SHG sources among them....
