Abstract

One of the main purposes of nanoplasmonics is the miniaturization of optical and electro-optical components that could be integrable in coplanar geometry. In this context, we propose a numerical model of a polarized scanning optical microscope able to faithfully reproduce both photon luminescence and temperature distribution images associated with complex plasmonic structures. The images are computed, pixel by pixel, through a complete self-consistent scheme based on the Green dyadic functions (GDF) formalism. The basic principle consists in the numerical implementation of a realistic three-dimensional light beam acting as a virtual light tip able to probe the volume of plasmonic structures. Two different acquisition procedures, respectively based on two-photon luminescence emission and local heating, are discussed in the case of gold colloidal particles.
