Near-field optical microscopes provide highly resolved images of various samples. However, images are difficult to interpret owing to their sensitivity to illumination conditions. Moreover, by contrast with classical microscopy, the near-field signal combines the contributions of evanescent and propagative modes. In this study, we present results of a… CONTINUE READING
