Advantages and limitations of spontaneousRaman spectroscopy/imagingAdvantages ! Minimally invasive technique ! Non-photobleaching signal for live cell studies ! Works under different conditions (temperatures and pressures) ! Chemical imaging without exogenous tags ! Works with different wavelengthsLimitations ! Fluorescence interference ! Limited spatial resolution ! Weak signal – long integration timesRaman scattering is extremely inefficient (10-30 cm2 cross sections)1 in 108 incident photons are Raman scattered

Why develop CARS? ! More sensitive (stronger signals) than spontaneous Ramanmicroscopy – faster, more efficient imaging for real-time analysis ! Contrast signal based on vibrational characteristics, no need forfluorescent tagging. ! CARS signal is at high frequency (lower wavelength) – minimalfluorescence interference ! Higher resolution

Coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy is a nonlinear vibrational microscopy technique that generates an anti-Stokes signal that is used to detect the presence of chemical species based on their vibrational signature.
