Abstract : Total internal reflection second harmonic generation (TIRSHG) has made possible the study of a series of neat n-alkane/water interfaces. Analysis of the incident and polarization angular dependent SH response allows for determination of interfacial nonlinear molecular properties. The measured surface nonlinear susceptibilities may be indicative of a high degree of interfacial order. jg
