Paper Abstract

A non perturbative Rayleigh method is used to calculate the electromagnetic field in the vicinity of an interface between metal and air. The metallic surface is enlightened by a thin coated nano-source localized a few nanometers above the interface. We study the influence of the size of the tip apparatus and of the distance between the tip end and the sample on the confinements of the spot in the metallic sample. The knowledge of the electromagnetic field in metal could enable to calculate temperature and dilatation of the surface of the metal.
