Strategies are described for mining the rich structural information in nonlinear optical studies of biological interfaces. Using relatively simple measurements acquired with a novel ellipsometric polarization analysis method, chiroptical phenomena observed in second harmonic and sum-frequency surface measurements can be interpreted using simple orientational models.
