Original Abstract

A reflection-mode scanning near-field optical microscope jointed with scanning tunneling microscope having the common revolving detection head and mounted on classical optical microscope stage, is proposed. This arrangement combines advantages of both near-field and far-field imageries and it is able to display the images of surface with superresolution beyond the diffraction limit. Its function is characterized by a large range of resolution and-or by a possibility to study different kinds of surfaces with nanometer scale accuracy. A novel probe is used in the optical stage of the microscope. During its fabrication the light power of Ar-Kr laser coupled in the single mode fiber allows a local heating of a buffered HF solution in the vicinity of the extremity of fiber. By tuning an output power of the laser, the flux of energy in the very tip of the fiber varies, and different cone angles of the probe could be obtained.
