Robust all-fiber light source for hyperspectral, coherent Raman microscopy in translational research (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Tim Hellwig; Maximilian Brinkmann; Carsten Fallnich

Paper Abstract

We present a rugged all-fiber optical parametric oscillator (FOPO) for coherent Raman imaging (CRI). The FOPO shows ideal performance for hyperspectral video-rate coherent Raman imaging with pulse durations of 7 ps at 40 MHz and switching times of less than 5 ms from 700 to 3530 wavenumbers. Due to our patented all-fiber setup the FOPO runs on a regular laboratory cart. We present shock measurements that resemble typical situations in a clinical environment as well as long-term stability measurements. The presented robust fiber laser system is ideally suited to allow easy access to hyperspectral, high-speed CRI for translational research.
