The group of Takuro IDEGUCHI developed a to record 24.000 Raman spectra per second based on Fourier-transform coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering. The method was applied to the analysis of transient mixing dynamics of toluene and benzene in the fingerprint region (200–1500 cm−1) but could also be used for the screening of intracellular materials in stem cells or algae, by applying femtosecond pulses of laser light in a flow-through mode.
