In this paper we show the applicability of Hyper-Rayleigh scattering to obtain hyperpolarizabilities of ionic and biochemical compounds. It was found that dark-adapted bacteriorhodopsin and its isolated chromophore have considerable second order nonlinear optical properties. Information obtained from depolarization studies of the scattered light is discussed.
