Paper Abstract

We developed a polarization-mode controllable coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering microscope. The polarizationmode of excitations beams such as linear, radial, or azimuth polarization were switched with compact polarization mode converters made of eight-segmented liquid-crystal spatial-light-modulators. The polarization-mode of the excitation beams is electrically controllable without any mechanical operation. We demonstrated the detection of the molecular orientation of liquid crystals with the developed microscope.
