Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the recent progress of application of interactions between optical near-fields and nanoscale materials. Photochemical vapor deposition of nanometeric Zn and Al are realized by using a UV optical near-field. Deposition of nanoscale ZnO is also shown. Utilizing the very advanced potential of this technology, the concept of nano-photonic IC is proposed. The optical switching operation of a single InGaAs quantum dot is shown to be able to be used for nano-photonic devices. Nano-photonic switching operation utilizing optical near-field interaction is also proposed and related spectroscopy of CuCl quantum dots are demonstrated. High-density storage and read-out by optical near-field is also demonstrated. Atom manipulation by the optical near-field is reviewed briefly.
