Paper Abstract

We discuss the development and application of a laser-scanning, nonlinear optical microscope capable of generating vibrationally resonant images based on sum-frequency generation (SFG), coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) or third-order sum-frequency generation (TSFG). The combination of these three modalities allows vibrationally sensitive imaging of both χ (2) and χ (3)-active structures in biological tissues, addressing both Raman-active as well as IR-allowed vibrational modes. We show the practical utility of these vibrationally sensitive modalities by imaging collagen I rich tissues.
