Paper Abstract

A scanning near-field optical microscope (SNOM) has been used to measures directly the evanescent field distribution surrounding an optical fiber taper. The SNOM interaction with the fiber taper is explain for the first time using a wave optics approach. Result of evanescent field measurements with varying wavelengths and surrounding refractive index media are presented. Experimental results are compared with theoretical data produced by the Finite Difference Beam Propagation Method.
