    Quantum electronic components-such as quantum antidots and one-dimensional channels-are usually defined from doped GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures using electron-beam lithography or local oxidation by conductive atomic force microscopy. In both cases, lithography and measurement are performed in...

    Abstract. Gallium arsenide is introduced as a material for the fabrication of novel probes for scanning probe microscopy (SPM). Compared to conventional probe materials (silicon, silicon nitride), III/V semiconductors such as gallium arsenide offer exceptional material properties: a direct band...

    Abstract. We propose to fabricate GaAlAs/GaAs multilayer microtips for scanning near-field optical microscopy (SNOM) using anisotropic etching. The etching was performed in a solution of H[sub 3]PO[sub 4]:H[sub 2]O[sub 2]:H[sub 2] O operating at a temperature of 10 Celsius. We obtained...

    We characterized the longitudinal field formed at a tightly focused spot by a high numerical aperture objective lens using a tip-enhanced near-field microscope. The longitudinal field efficiently excites the localized surface plasmon polaritons at the metallic tip apex resulting in an electric...
