Label-free, non-contact imaging with mechanical contrast and optical sectioning is a substantial challenge in microscopy. Spontaneous Brillouin scattering microscopy meets this challenge, but encounters a trade-off between acquisition speed and the specificity for biomechanical constituents with overlapping Brillouin bands. Stimulated Brillouin scattering microscopy overcomes this trade-off and enables the cross-sectional imaging of live Caenorhabditis elegans at the organ and subcellular levels, with both elasticity and viscosity contrasts at high specificity and with practical recording times.
