Abstract

Collection-mode near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) is used to map nanoscopic second-harmonic generation (SHG) in N-(4-nitrophenyl)-L-prolinol crystals. A spatial resolution of 98  nm is achieved. Near-field polarization-dependent SHG measurement is performed, and a local effective SHG susceptibility of 224±18 pm/V is obtained.
