Abstract
The content of collagen is up to 30% existing in mammals. It supports the main component of connective tissues such as skin, ligament, and cartilage. Among various types of collagen, type-I collagen is of the most abundance and has been broadly studied due to the importance in bioscience. Second harmonic generation (SHG) microscopy is an effective tool used to study the collagen organization without labeling. In this study, we used circular polarization instead of linear polarization to retrieve three-dimensional (3D) molecular orientation of type-I collagen with only two cross polarized SHG images without acquiring an image stack of varying polarization.
