Abstract

Coherent supercontinuum generated from a photonic crystal fiber is applied to near-infrared coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (NIR-CARS) microscopy. A clear CARS image of polystyrene beads has been successfully obtained at a wavenumber difference resonant with the CH-stretching vibrational mode.
