Nonlinear optical spectroscopy of collagen transformation
Additional Document Info
We report on the novel application of nonlinear optics to study molecular assemblies. By using the third-harmonic generation in solution we were able to determine both the third-order nonlinear susceptibility of collagen and the size of fibrils. The developed approach also helped us in revealing the helix-coil transformation of collagen in solution.
