Executive SummarySecond-harmonic generation is an optical phenomenon that occurs when a nonlinear surface combines photons of light to produce photons with twice the frequency and half the wavelength of the original photons. Biodesy is harnessing its power to measure protein conformation for drug discovery.

California biotech, which recently raised a $15 million Series A financing, is developing second harmonic generation technology that can capture high-resolution movies of proteins as their shapes and functions change. This could help researchers determine which molecules might work at specific binding sites.
