Paper Abstract

Near-field intensity distributions in inhomogeneous silver nanostructures were investigated using near-field optical microscopy. By varying the metallic concentration and the excitation wavelength, different plasmon scattering regimes were addressed and identified using statistical analysis tools such as the probability density function and intensity auto-correlation function. The intensity correlation length was found to indicate an intermediate regime where both surface scattering and plasmon localization coexist on the same scale.
