Optical Near-Field Measurements on Arrays of Nanoscaled Holes in Gold Films — •Jens Ehlermann, Stephan Schwaiger, Markus Broell, Daniel Stickler, Detlef Heitmann, and Stefan Mendach — Institut für Angewandte Physik, Universität Hamburg, Jungiusstrasse 11, 20355 Hamburg

Scanning near field optical microscopy (SNOM) is a method to examine the distribution of the electromagnetic near field on a samples' surface [1,2]. Using our SNOM we are able to either excite or detect the electromagnetic field with a resolution of about 200 nm using a metallized tapered single mode fiber with a 200 nm aperture. This fiber is mounted on a xyz piezo stage and scans the sample to achieve a two-dimensional image of the topography and the field distribution. We present first near field images of an array of 180 nm holes with 500 nm periodicity in a 50 nm thick gold film. Such structures reveal an enhanced transmission [3] which is attributed to the excitation of surface plasmons [4]. We discuss the detection of these surface plasmons in our structures. We gratefully acknowledge support by the DFG through GrK 1286, SFB 508 and the LEXI Cluster 'Nano Spintronics'.
