Resolution limit of the near-field scanning technique

M.J.Adams, D.N.Payne, F.M.E.Sladen and A.Hartog

Abstract

The near-field intensity distribution in a fully-excited fibre is calculated by superposition of propagating modes. It is shown that the resolution of the near-field scanning technique is limited by the number of modes supported by the fibre. Experimental confirmation is given.
