Paper Abstract

It is shown that the high-resolution laser photoelectron microscope with subwavelength-spatial resolution can be used for an absolute values of the two-photon external photoelectric effect measurements with high (a few nm-scale) localization. The spatial distribution of light intensity in the near field is studied by observing the photoelectron projection images of a subwavelength nanoaperture. The imaging electrons are obtained as a result of two-photon external photoelectric effect induced in the aperture formed at the end of an optical fiber by femtosecond pulses of the second-harmonic radiation (410 nm) of a Ti:sapphire laser. The light-field distribution in the aperture is not distorted by any near-by object, which allows the first nonperturbing measurement of such a distribution.
