We demonstrate a fiber-format system for dual-comb coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering spectroscopy. The system is based on two ytterbium fiber (Yb) femtosecond lasers at repetition frequencies of 94 MHz, a Yb amplifier, and a photonic crystal fiber for spectral broadening and generation of pulses with a central wavelength of 1040 nm and durations in the sub-20-fs regime. We observed Raman spectra of acetonitrile and ethyl acetate with spectral coverage from 100 to 1300  cm-1, resolution of 8  cm-1, and a signal-to-noise ratio of around 100, when averaging over 10 acquisitions. The design is suitable for implementing portable dual-comb coherent Raman spectrometers.

Abstract

We demonstrate a fiber-format system for dual-comb coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering spectroscopy. The system is based on two ytterbium fiber (Yb) femtosecond lasers at repetition frequencies of 94 MHz, a Yb amplifier, and a photonic crystal fiber for spectral broadening and generation of pulses with a central wavelength of 1040 nm and durations in the sub-20-fs regime. We observed Raman spectra of acetonitrile and ethyl acetate with spectral coverage from 100 to 1300  cm-1, resolution of 8  cm-1, and a signal-to-noise ratio of around 100, when averaging over 10 acquisitions. The design is suitable for implementing portable dual-comb coherent Raman spectrometers.
