Two-color Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy has shown great potential in label-free digital histology with diagnostic results similar to H&E stain. However, achieving real-time two-color SRS imaging is challenging. We have precisely engineered the pulse profiles of the Stokes beams, and fully utilized the in-phase (X) and quadrature (Y) outputs of a phase sensitive lock-in amplifier to realize simultaneous two-color SRS imaging. We have demonstrated its robustness and advantages in rapid histology, as well as real-time in vivo imaging of live animals, both in transmission and epi modes. Moreover, we have also adapted this method to other pump-probe based microscopes, such as transient absorption (TA) microscopy.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
