Paper Abstract

We present a numerical simulation of photon scanning tunneling microscopy based on the Rayleigh approach. Our non- perturbative formalism is able to solve the electromagnetic field near to a dielectric surface with deterministic one- dimensional sub-wavelength structures. The constant-height near-field image in transmission mode through two triangular ridges placed on surface has been calculated for p-polarized incident light at normal incidence. The influence on the signal by the dielectric function of the probe, the polarization of the incident light, and the separation of the objects are investigated.
