Abstract

The combination of atomic-force and scanning-near-field optical microscopies is useful for characterizing the physical and optical parameters of optoelectronic devices. With a commercial atomic-force microscope adapted to perform scanning-near-field optical measurements, we succeed in determining core diameters, localizing the erbium doping zone, and analyzing propagation modes in erbium-doped and multimodal optical fibers.
