The optical response used in studies of coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy can be enhanced or suppressed by means of electromagnetic confinement. In this paper, an approach based on planar mirrors is presented. Because of the classical origin of such a nonlinear optical effect, the theory is developed within a fully classical framework and it turns out that the CARS signal can be modified in a fashion similar to what has been extensively investigated for equivalent alterations of incoherent signals understood in terms of cavity quantum electrodynamics. © 2007 MAIK "Nauka/Interperiodica".
