This book describes in detail the physics of localized surface plasmon polaritons excited near fine metallic structures and the principles of near-field optics and microscopy related to this localized field. It covers not only near-field optical microscopy but also wider fields such as local spectroscopy, nano-scale optical processing, quantum near-field optics, and atom manipulation.
Near-Field Optics and the Surface Plasmon Polariton.- Near-Field Microscope Probes Utilizing Surface Plasmon Polaritons.- Apertureless Metallic Probes for Near-Field Microscopy.- Controlling Light Confinement by Excitation of Localized Surface Plasmons.- Spectroscopy of Gap Modes in Metal Particle—Surface Systems.- Near-Field Spectral Analysis of Metallic Beads.- Forces in Optical Near-Fields.- Laser Trapping of a Metallic Probe for Near Field Microscopy.- Surface-Enhanced Infrared Absorption.- Excitation of Surface Plasmon Polaritons by a Focused Laser Beam.
