Abstract

Spontaneous Raman scattering is a powerful tool for chemical sensing and imaging but suffers from a weak signal. In this Letter, we present an application of adaptive optics to enhance the Raman scattering signal detected through a turbid, optically thick material. This technique utilizes recent advances in wavefront shaping techniques for focusing light through a turbid media and applies them to chemical detection to achieve a signal enhancement with little sacrifice to the overall simplicity of the experimental setup. With this technique, we demonstrate an enhancement in the Raman signal from titanium dioxide particles through a highly scattering material. This technique may pave the way to label-free tracking using the optical memory effect.
