Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy is a label-free and noninvasive imaging technique using vibration spectroscopy as the contrast mechanism. Recent advances have allowed significant improvements in sensitivity and selectivity, opening a wide range of applications. This is particularly relevant in biology since SRS microscopy does not affect cell function, and is best suited for imaging small metabolite molecules. For medicine, SRS microscopy provides instant tissue examination without the need of previous histological staining procedures, and is particularly suited for tumor surgery.
