Coherent Raman imaging methods have been under development for almost 15 years. The field is beginning to mature, transitioning from a “new techniques” phase to an applications phase. I will discuss current capabilities of broadband coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (BCARS) microscopy using optimized excitation paradigms, and provide a few examples of how broadband BCARS imaging has helped to answer (or raise) questions in investigations of tissues and small organisms. I will also discuss progress in processing BCARS spectra to make them independent of excitation profile or non-resonant response, and directly comparable to spontaneous Raman spectra. I will also discuss progress on a new approach to time-domain BCARS that promises to significantly simplify and speed BCARS data acquisition.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
