Paper Abstract

Basic principles of laser assisted and chemical etching processes for scanning near-field optical microscope (SNOM) probes formation and control techniques are presented. The thermal, temporal and chemical regimes are consider in order to provide stable reproducibility and high quality of SNOM probes on the base adiabatically tapered single-mode optical fiber. The advantages of different methods of SNOM fabrication are discussed. Application of scanning near-field microscopy for imaging, spectroscopy, diagnostics and nanolithography with nanometer resolution are observed. The various methods of diagnostics of sample surface and nanometer objects (spectroscopy, near-field photoconductivity, mapping of radiating surfaces and others) are presented. The possibilities of nanometer pattern creation using SNOM for superhigh density data recording and nanoelectronic devices are discussed.
