Abstract

A high-speed microscopic imaging system based on a multiwavelength source and time-stretch technique is proposed and demonstrated. We realize an imaging system at 1D scan rate of 80 MHz with 20 resolvable points. This scheme breaks the bottleneck of large bandwidth and high repetition rate in mode-lock lasers and has great potential for imaging system integration.
