A highly simplified architecture for stimulated-Raman-scattering microscopy is demonstrated, where multiple tunable narrowband picosecond pulses are generated by spectral compression of femtosecond pulses emitted by a single compact Er-fiber oscillator. The system provides high sensitivity ( 2 × 10 7 ) and spectral resolution ( sub- 15 cm 1 ) , and it offers an unprecedented flexibility for multicolor imaging.
