Overview

Optics at the Nanometer Scale: Imaging and Storing with Photonic Near Fields deals with the fundamentals of and the latest developments and applications of near-field optical microscopy, giving basic accounts of how and under what circumstances superresolution beyond the half- wavelength Rayleigh limit is achieved. Interferometric and fluorescence techniques are also described, leading to molecular and even atomic resolution using light. The storage of optical information at this level of resolution is also addressed.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book is essential reading not only for specialists in the field, but for newcomers. It sets out basics on which we can build. I recommend it very highly indeed.'
L. Grosser in Optik, 106:1 (1997)
Booknews
Contains papers from the September 1995 workshop, presenting material on the fundamentals of optical microscopy and on emerging areas including new interferometric methods and applications in fluorescence and information encoding. Topics include light scattering by tips in front of surfaces; modeling optical resonators probed by subwavelength sized optical detectors; primary imaging modes in near-field microscopy; local excitation of surface plasmons by TNOM; and fluorescence microscopy and spectroscopy by scanning near-field optical/atomic force microscope. Includes b&w images. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
