Abstract

A novel method using a tapping-mode scanning near-field optical microscopy (SNOM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) to study both optical fiber structures and near-field optical intensity profiles at fiber endface was developed. This technique, as demonstrated, probed both refractive index distribution and near-field propagating intensity profile of fiber structures simultaneously. Correlation between waveguide structures and near-field propagating modes was acquired directly from experimental images.
