The coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS) has attracted a great attention as non-invasive method of real-time monitoring of processes occurring in biological tissues and cells. It needs a special kind of optical source that would be compact, stable and low cost. We investigate a possibility of using highly-chirped dissipative soliton oscillator together with a narrowband fiber Bragg grating and all-fiber amplifier. Optical pulses with the duration of 85 ps and the peak power of 400 W were generated at the output of the fiber system with the repetition rate about 13 MHz. Developed source is suitable to pump a fiber optical parametric oscillator for CARS.
