By virtue of its chemical specificity and label-free nature, Raman spectroscopy is a ubiquitous tool in analytical chemistry which has recently found increasing interest in biology and medicine, as technical improvements steadily enable applications. In particular, the low-frequency region of the Raman spectrum, which contains rich information about intermolecular interactions and higher-order structure, has promise for biological applications. However, detection of low-frequency modes remains a challenge with conventional techniques for Raman spectroscopy. Here, we propose and experimentally demonstrate Sagnac-enhanced impulsive stimulated Raman scattering (SE-ISRS), a method for time-domain Raman spectroscopy that provides highly sensitive low-frequency Raman spectra at all probe frequencies.
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 most presentations.
