Abstract

We use a finite-difference time-domain method to model the experiments of second-harmonic generation at the apex of a metallic tip used in a scanning near-field optical microscope. We calculate the linear diffracted field and the second-harmonic field. In the near field we compare the confinement of the two fields around the apex. In the far field we determine the spectral responses versus the sample tip coupling.
