ABSTRACT
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 explore the potential of tapered Sommerfeld wire waveguides for terahertz near-field imaging. The electric field confinement in the vicinity of the tapered wire tip is exploited to achieve subwavelength resolution. After coupling onto the Sommerfeld wire, terahertz pulses propagate as...

    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.

    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...
