Abstract: Polarization-dependent photon spectroscopy (dichroism) of the second-harmonic generation response is shown to reveal chiral and magnetic properties of a sample. Two dichroic signals are allowed with electric-dipole and electric-quadrupole scattering events, and both require circular polarization in the primary beam. Explicit expressions for the signals are derived using theoretical techniques from atomic physics.
