Designed for use with 800-nm femtosecond lasers, the SCG-800-CARS from Newport Corp. contains 12-cm, highly nonlinear photonic crystal fiber with zero dispersion points at ~775 and 945 nm. The coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) fiber device is suitable for spectroscopy and microscopy applications. Its two closely spaced, zero-dispersion wavelengths deliver stable, low-noise supercontinuum generation that allows control of the spectral shape by tuning the pump wavelength. The fiber ends are sealed and mounted in quartz ferrules, with the polarization axis aligned to a line on the end of the device. Its fiber is mounted in a robust, 25-mm-diameter, 120-mm-long aluminum housing, which can be easily mounted on a translation stage.
