The article offers information from the "Tenth International Conference on Near-Field Optics, Nanophotonics, and Related Techniques (NFO 10)" that was held from September 1-5, 2008 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Fritz Keilmann spoke about Terahertz imaging. Jörg Wissler and Andreas Naber offered presentations related to the study of molecule transport through nuclear pores using aperture-type near-field scanning optical microscope (SNOM) and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy methods.

    We introduce and investigate a special regime of terahertz generation in electro-optic crystals with ultrashort laser pulses, in which neither phase-matching nor Cherenkov radiation mechanism are efficient. This regime occurs under the conditions that the optical group refractive index is larger...

    Impact of sub-wavelength-size dielectric particles on Zenneck surface waves on planar metallic antennas is investigated at terahertz (THz) frequencies with THz near-field probe microscopy. Perturbations of the surface waves show the particle presence, despite its sub-wavelength size. The...

    The transmission of electromagnetic waves through a sub-wavelength aperture is described by Bethe's theory. This imposes severe limitations on using apertures smaller than ~1/100 of the wavelength for near-field microscopy at terahertz (THz) frequencies. Experimentally, we observe that the...

    A passive probe antenna for cw near-field microscopy at millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths is defined. It is based on the coupling between a free-space linearly polarized propagating beam to a wire mode. This is obtained efficiently owing to a discontinuous phase plate. This passive...

    We report on the advancement of apertureless terahertz microscopy by active shear force control of the scanning probe. Extreme subwavelength spatial resolution and a maximized image contrast are achieved by maintaining a tip-surface distance of about 20 nm. The constant distance between scanning...

    The mechanism of the interaction of coherent terahertz radiation with a probe-nanoobject system has been experimentally investigated in a terahertz apertureless near-field microscope. It has been found that the type of the material of a sample under the probe, as well as the geometry of the...

    We observe dipole resonances in thin conductive carbon micro-fibers by detecting an enhanced electric field in the near-field of a single fiber at terahertz (THz) frequencies. Time-domain analysis of the electric field shows that each fiber sustains resonant current oscillations at the frequency...

    We present a cathodoluminescence spectroscopy technique which combines deep subwavelength excitation resolution with angle-resolved detection capabilities. The cathodoluminescence emission is collected by a paraboloid mirror (effective NA = 0.96) and is projected onto a 2D CCD array. The...
