Abstract

Multi-µJ narrow-bandwidth (≈ 10 cm−1) picosecond pulses, broadly tunable in the visible-UV range (320-520 nm), are generated by spectral compression of femtosecond pulses emitted by an amplified Ti:sapphire system. Such pulses provide the ideal Raman pump for broadband femtosecond stimulated Raman spectroscopy, as here demonstrated on a heme protein.

Schematic diagram of the experimental setup for FSRS using tunable narrowband pulses generated by SC. CPA: chirped pulse amplification; WLG: white light generation; VA: variable attenuator flip mirror (FM). Alternate use of the two FM allows to select each of the two layouts described in the text.

(a) Simulated spectra (black solid lines) obtained by SC in BBO, starting from the FF spectrum shown in red dashed line; inset blow up of a spectrum with a FWHM of 7.9 cm−1. (b) Measured SH spectra (black solid lines) and FF spectrum (red dashed line).

Fig. 3

(a) Sequence of tunable narrowband spectra obtained by SC of the visible OPA; (b) measured pulse bandwidths (red circles) after deconvolution with the instrumental response compared to the bandwidths expected from theory (dashed lines) and energy tuning curve (blue squares) for a fixed 12-µJ OPA energy, which provides the best spectral narrowing conditions.
