Paper Abstract

A microstructured optical fiber was first used in 2000 for supercontinuum generation. Since then, enormous progress has been made in understanding, controlling, and marketing fiber-based supercontinuum sources. In particular, biomedical applications of such sources are revolutionizing the field of medical imaging. In this talk I review the recent progress in this area and describe how a supercontinuum can be employed for biomedical imaging using the techniques known as coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering, stimulated emission-depletion microscopy, and optical coherence tomography.
