Abstract

We report an all-fiber free-running bidirectional dual-comb laser system for coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering spectroscopy based on spectral focusing. The mode-locked oscillator is a bidirectional ring-cavity erbium fiber laser running at a repetition rate of ∼ 114 MHz. One output of the bidirectional laser is wavelength-shifted from 1560 to 1060 nm via supercontinuum generation for use as the pump source. We have been able to record the Raman spectra of various samples such as polystyrene, olive oil, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), and polyethylene in the C–H stretching window. We believe that this all-fiber laser design has promising potential for coherent Raman spectroscopy and also label-free imaging for a variety of practical applications.
