An all-fiber reflecting fluorescent temperature probe is proposed based on the simplified hollow-core photonic crystal fiber (SHC-PCF) filled with an aqueous CdSe/ZnS quantum dot solution. SHC-PCF is an excellent PCF used to fill liquid materials, which has low loss transmission bands in the visible wavelength range and enlarged core sizes. Both end faces of the SHC-PCF were spliced with multimode fiber after filling in order to generate a more stable and robust waveguide structure. The obtained temperature sensitivity dependence of the emission wavelength and the self-referenced intensity are 126.23 pm/°C and -0.007/°C in the temperature range of -10°C-120°C, respectively. © 2016 Optical Society of America.

In a coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscope, when samples with different shapes and dimensions are excitated by collinearly introduced and tightly focused Gaussian beams, the microscopic structure will be determined by the spatial distributions of generated CARS signals. Therefore, we build a theoretical model for CARS signals from spherical sample under the tightly focused condition. The intensity and phase distributions of tightly focused linear polarization Gaussian beams are analyzed with vector wave equations. The vector wave equation of CARS signals is derived from Green's function. The far-field CARS radiation patterns of spherical scatters with different diameters are simulatively calculated. Theoretical analysis and simulative calculation results show that the intensities of forward and backward CARS signals from the small spherical sampler are similar. The images with high contrast can be obtained by backward detection method from an objective with a high numerical aperture. For big spherical samplers, intensities of CARS signals are greatly increased. The emission direction is mainly concentrated in a spatial angle. The forward CARS signals can be effectively collected by an objective with low numerical aperture. © 2014 Chinese Physical Society.
