Abstract

The three-dimensional coherent transfer function of confocal coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering microscopy was derived theoretically. The three-dimensional optical transfer function was also derived under the weak-contrast assumption. The effect of a pinhole in front of the detector on the optical transfer function was estimated, and it was found that the cutoff frequency of the optical transfer function is independent of the pinhole. Micrometer-order spatial resolution along the optical axis was also experimentally demonstrated.
