Abstract

A femtosecond light source comprising two high-intensity beams at different wavelengths is applied to coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering microscopy. One wavelength is supplied by a Titanium : Sapphire oscillator, while the other is derived from that via soliton-self-frequency shift in a microstructured fiber. Clear CARS images are acquired with the frequency difference adjusted to resonances of polystyrene and lipids.
