Paper Abstract

Near-field microscopy techniques are ideally suited for the determination of optical electromagnetic field structures with high spatial resolution. In this paper we report some preliminary results of our experiments on the near-field diffraction by a straight-edge and on the fields emanating from a single mode optical fiber. It is suggested that near-field techniques might provide an excellent approach to characterizing the properties of optical fibers.
