We demonstrate a technique for simultaneous detection of coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) at four vibrational frequencies, using simple passive optical elements and without spectrally resolved detection. The technique is based on pump and Stokes femtosecond pulses selectively exciting vibrational resonances through spectral focusing. By replicating the pump and Stokes pair into four pairs, each traveling through appropriate glass elements, we simultaneously excite four different vibrational frequencies. The resulting CARS is a periodic train of intensities detected by a single photomultiplier and frequency analyzed to retrieve its Fourier coefficients. We demonstrate detection of methanol and ethanol mixtures in water and quantitative determination of their concentration owing to the improved chemical selectivity of this quadruplex CARS scheme.
