Abstract

The local optical field of a semiconductor micrograting ( GaAs , 10 × 10 μ m ) is recorded in the middle field region using an optical scanning probe in collection mode at a constant height. The recorded image shows the micrograting with high contrast and a displaced diffraction image. The finite penetration depth of the light leads to a reduced edge resolution in the direction of the illuminating beam while the edge contrast in the perpendicular direction remains high ( 100 nm ) . We use the discrete dipole model to calculate the local optical field to show how the displacement of the diffraction image increases with increasing distance from the surface.
