Second harmonic generation can be used to probe the microstructure of materials. This non-destructive all- optical method is applied to quantify the orientation of the micro-columns constituting aluminium nitride thin films. Very small tilt angles of the columns are easily detectable. This technique is applicable to the control of material structure during deposition.
