We demonstrate stimulated Raman microscopy with broadband pump and Stokes pulses, using spectral focusing to attain spectral resolution and to rapidly acquire spectra within a spectral window determined by the bandwidth of the pulses. As the Stokes pulse, we use the redshifted soliton generated in a photonic crystal fiber, which allows for simple shifting of the accessible spectral window.
