Paper Abstract

A coherent scanning near-field optical microscope (SNOM) is presented. The set-up employs heterodyne interferometry, allowing measurements of both amplitude and phase of the optical field. Experimental results show polarization effects that reveal important information about the vectorial field conversion by the fiber tip.
