Second harmonic generation (SHG) experiments are widely used in Chemistry to investigate the behaviour of interfaces between two phases. We discuss issues arising in planning SHG experiments at the air/liquid interface in order to obtain maximal precision in the subsequent data analysis. An interesting feature of such models is that the unknown model parameters are complex. We provide designs that are optimal for estimating these parameters and discuss robustness issues arising from the non-linearity of the model.
