Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a formalism to determine the relationship between the full vectorial electric field existing at the object plane of a microscope and that existing at the image plane. The model is then used to quantitatively simulate, in both phase and intensity, the image of a radiating electric dipole placed either in a homogeneous medium or in the vicinity of a substrate. These simulations are compared with experimental measurements on single gold nanoparticles carried out by quadriwave lateral shearing interferometry.
