Abstract

In two previous papers we presented experimental results of measurements with a scanning plasmon optical microscope constructed in the Kretschmann configuration. The angular distribution of the conical radiation from the scanning tip was measured, and the multiple-scattering images of simple surface irregularities were detected. We make a simple model of the multiple-scattering images and compare it with our data, deriving excellent results.
