Author Affiliations +
We present a multi-wavelength semiconductor laser source for photoacoustic imaging. We discuss the abilities of the system and its limitations. In detail we analyze how this laser diode system might be used to increase the spectral contrast of ultrasonic systems. In a first test set-up we prove in principle the spectral sensitivity of this device.
