Paper Abstract

Recent application of tapered fiber tips in near field optical microscopy has demonstrated a resolution far exceed the diffraction limit. We investigate the propagation and tunneling of monochromatic light through a tapered fiber tip near a dielectric surface. The transmission rate through the tip is given for various circumstances and found to increase significantly with the dielectric constant of the sample.
