Abstract

Subnanosecond supercontinuum (SC) has been generated by a 1064nm microchip laser combined with a photonic crystal fiber. The ultrabroadband (>2000cm1) SC has facilitated multiplex coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microspectroscopy in the spectral range from 1000 to 3000cm1 with lateral and depth spatial resolution of 0.9 and 4.6μm, respectively. A clear CARS image of a Nicotiana tabacum L. cv. Bright Yellow 2 cell has been obtained with high vibrational contrast.
