Pixel-resolution mapping of collagen fiber spatial orientation in bovine leg tendon (upper row), chicken skin (middle row) and chicken leg tendon (bottom row) was achieved using polarization-resolved SHG microscopy. Shown in the left column are SHG intensity images acquired by circularly polarized femtosecond laser. In addition, maps of fiber azimuthal angles are shown in the middle column. Finally, SHG image at different depths for bovine tendon (right column, upper panel) and fiber elevation angle maps for chicken skin and chicken leg tendon are shown in right column. Individual image size: 120 × 120 mm2. (Picture: V. A. Hovhannisyan et al., pp. 768–776 in this issue)
