Paper Abstract

Enhanced electromagnetic fields are investigated, both theoretically and experimentally, on two model systems using high spatial resolution. Strong field enhancements at the apex of a tungsten tip illuminated by an external light source are studied as a function of the incident polarization. The surface of percolating random metal- dielectric films consist of several spectral resonances, which have been calculated and are observed here in near field with 10 nm lateral resolution.
