Paper Abstract

We experimentally demonstrated that the microsphere on the top surface of the sample can enhance the imaging capability of microscope, and possible to arrive a resolution below the conventional diffractive limit. The principle of the super-resolution was discussed, and mainly due to the transformation of surface wave to propagation wave. The mechanism of super-resolution and the corresponding phenomenon are presented in the paper.
