Paper Abstract

We propose a new laser scanning microscope using coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy. As the proposed method is a kind of Raman spectroscopy, molecular structural information are obtained without any staining. The imaging property is theoretically estimated by using the 3D optical transfer function. It is shown that the proposed microscope has 3D resolution in any case of measuring for the weak or the high contrast object with or without a pinhole before a detector. Spatial resolution of micrometer order along the optical axis is demonstrated.
