We present a coherent Raman scattering (CRS) spectroscopy technique achieving a CRS spectral acquisition rate of 50,000 spectra/second over a Raman spectral region of 200 - 1430 cm-1 with a resolution of 4.2 cm-1. This ultrafast, broadband and high-resolution CRS spectroscopic performance is realized by a polygonal Fourier-domain delay line serving as an ultra-rapid optical-path-length scanner in a broadband Fourier-transform coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) spectroscopy platform. We present a theoretical description of the technique and demonstrate continuous, ultrafast, broadband, and high-resolution CARS spectroscopy on a liquid toluene sample using our proof-of-concept setup.
