    We investigate in real space amplitude and phase distributions of light in photonic nanojets emerging from micrometer-sized dielectric spheres with a high-resolution interference microscope. Strong localization of light and a Gouy phase anomaly are witnessed. We show that the phase advance of...

    We extend the spectral range of near-field infrared microscopy attaining submicron resolution by using tunable infrared radiation generated by difference frequency generation and an apertured cantilever. The custom-built cantilever has a hollow tip with a wide opening angle and offers two orders...

    Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle is one of the important basic principles of quantum mechanics. In most of the books on quantum mechanics, this uncertainty principle is generally illustrated with the help of a gamma ray microscope, wherein neither the image formation criterion nor the lens...

    It is well known that electromagnetic radiation—radio waves—can in principle be used to communicate over interstellar distances1,2. By contrast, sending physical artefacts has seemed extravagantly wasteful of energy, and imagining human travel between the stars even more so3,4. The...

    According to theory, x-ray magnetic circular dichroism in a synchrotron is equivalent to energy loss magnetic chiral dichroism (EMCD) in a transmission electron microscope (TEM). After a synopsis of the development of EMCD, the theoretical background is reviewed and recent results are presented,...
