Abstract

Optical images from nano-scale features were obtained by collection of leakage radiation coupled to surface plasmon polaritons excited by near-field fluorescence. Plasmonic crystals with spatial periods as small as 190 nm and non-periodic features separated by 80 nm, corresponding to ~λ/7, were clearly visible in the real plane images using this far-field technique. We show that the leaked light from the investigated samples carries detailed information to the far-field which is not present in the images obtained with conventional optical microscopy.
