Paper Abstract

Optical images whose resolution is not limited by diffraction can be created by recording the radiation from a point-like (subwavelength size) probe light source while raster scanning it across an object in immediate proximity. An imaging capability with resolution in the range from 1 to 50 nm has been demonstrated with various types of light sources including luminescence from an STM junction in transmission as well as in reflection emission and in a topographic mode. This paper gives a brief overview of the underlying principles followed by a discussion of a few selected results.
