Abstract
Second-harmonic generation microscopy is a promising tool for the visualization of biological membrane potentials with push-pull chromophores. We describe a response mechanism based on the electric field modulation of chromophore first hyperpolarizabilities. Our model approximates the chromophores as two level systems that incur charge shifts upon optical excitation.
