Polarisation Dependance Analysis

The polarization data has been analysed using two different approaches. The equations relating the intensity and the input polarisation angle are 21

Is = |C sin 2γ |2(3)

Ip = |A cos2γ + B sin2γ |2(4)

I45 = |A cos2γ + B sin2γ +C sin 2γ|2 (5)


A = a2 χxzx+ a3 χzxx+ a4 χzzz(6)

B = a5 χzxx (7)

C = a1 χxzx (8)

The ai coefficients are combinations of Fresnel factors, which using a 3-layer model (air, interface and water) take into account the dependence on the refractive indices of the phases and the angle of incidence of the fundamental and ?reflected angle? of the second harmonic wavelength22. The parameters used in this work are given in table 2. At this stage the value of the interfacial refractive index, nint, was assumed to be the average value of the bulk media refractive indices, nair and nwater. This gives a value of nint=1.167.
