Abstract

We report, to the best of our knowledge, the first turn-key and compact dual-output sub-nanosecond supercontinuum source applicable to ultrabroadband multiplex coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering microspectroscopy of biological samples. The light source design and the microspectroscopy setup are described in details. Easy multicolour imaging of Caenorhabditis elegans nematode is operated successfully and discussed.
