Abstract

We present a compact coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering microscope based on a widely tunable picosecond Er:fiber laser. Intense and bandwidth-limited 1 ps pump pulses at a center wavelength of 775 nm are generated via frequency mixing within the broadband fundamental at 1.55 μm. Narrowband Stokes pulses are obtained by frequency shifting of solitons in a highly nonlinear bulk fiber and subsequent second-harmonic generation. The tuning range from 850 nm to 1100 nm gives access to vibrational resonances between 1150 cm 1 and 3800 cm 1 . A first imaging application in the spectral region of CH stretch vibrations is demonstrated.
