Paper Abstract

We present a theory of the frustration of the field by the fiber optic probe of the Photon Scanning Tunneling Microscope (1) and compare theoretical and experimental images obtained on lamellar or crossed gratings fabricated on insulating substrates. The calculation take into account the polarization of the light incident on the prism and the direction of the plane of incidence with respect to the grating lines. We show that the overall behavior of the experimental curves is consistent with the calculations but that great care must be taken to interpret the images.
