Abstract

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 (2×107) and spectral resolution (sub-15cm1), and it offers an unprecedented flexibility for multicolor imaging.
