Paper Abstract

We demonstrate imaging with the technique of nonlinear interferometric vibrational imaging (NIVI). Experimental images using this instrumentation and method have been acquired from both phantom and biological tissues. In our system, coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) signals are detected by spectral interferometry, which is able to fully restore high resolution Raman spectrum on each focal spot of a sample covering multiple Raman bands using broadband pump and Stokes laser beams. Spectral-domain detection has been demonstrated and allows for a significant increase in image acquiring speed, in signal-to-noise, and in interferometric signal stability.
