Actively shaped supercontinuum from a photonic crystal fiber for nonlinear coherent microspectroscopy.

Author information

Physikalische Chemie, Philipps-Universit├Ąt Marburg, Germany.


The combination of broadband pulses from a photonic crystal fiber (PCF) pumped by a standard 100 fs oscillator and pulse shaping is successfully employed for coherently controlled nonlinear spectroscopy. The pulse shaper manages not only to compress the PCF supercontinuum in a closed-loop optimization scheme but also to manipulate the phase at the same time for quantum control applications. This approach is demonstrated by single-beam coherent anti-Stokes Raman microspectroscopy and should be, due to its simplicity, well suited for general applications in nonlinear microscopy.
