Stephenson, RJ and Welland, ME (1995) A normal force distance regulation scheme for near-field optical microscopy. Applied Physics Letters. 1607-. ISSN 0003-6951Full text not available from this repository.
A near-field optical microscope (NFOM) has been developed that combines the features of a near-field optical microscope and an atomic force microscope. Improved control over tip-sample separation has led to improved optical imaging and independent surface topography information. The tip oscillation is normal to the sample plane thereby reducing lateral forces - important for nonperturbative imaging of soft samples. Both topographic images and reflection near-field optical images are presented which demonstrate the capability of the system. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.
