Paper Abstract

We consider creation of surface nanostructures by using two different laser near-field configurations. One configuration arising in the course of diffraction of a plane laser light wave by an aperture of a small size (less than the optical wavelength) causes a normally incident atomic beam to undergo deep focusing to a size 10 angstroms. The second configuration is the evanescent fields of two laser beams experiencing total internal reflection at dielectric-vacuum interface. This configuration can produce a surface trap for neutral atoms permitting it to deposit a single atom on a surface.
