Metal-free scanning optical microscopy with a fractal fiber probe

Rollinson, Claire M; Orbons, Shannon; Huntington, Shane T; Gibson, Brant Cameron; Canning, J; Love, John; Roberts, Ann; Jamieson, David Norman


Scanning Near-field Optical Microscopy (SNOM) is the leading instrument used to image optical fields on the nanometer scale. A metalcoating is typically applied to SNOM probes to define a subwavelength aperture and minimize optical leakage, but the presence of such coatings in the near field of the sample can often cause a substantial change in the sample emission properties. For the first time, the authors demonstrate nearfield imaging on a metal substrate with a metal-free probe made...[Show more]
