A femtosecond laser is used to study second harmonic generation in reflection and for the first time in transmission using a silicon membrane sample. The second harmonic signal measured in transmission is higher than expected and a new interpretation of second harmonic generation results from silicon/silicon dioxide interfaces is proposed.
