Nonlinear interferometric vibrational imaging: Efficient detection of coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering


Journal Article

Raman scattering has been a useful tool for probing the molecular contents of gases, liquids and biological media. It can identify molecules non-invasively based on their resonant vibrational frequencies. This technique uses optical frequency radiation, which is relatively easy to create, manipulate and detect. The use of Coherent Anti-Strokes Raman Scattering (CARS) has vastly improved the available Raman signal, a new method method called Nonlinear Interferometric Vibrational Imaging has further increased the efficiency of detection.
