Abstract

We studied numerically and experimentally the possibility of the development of a probe based on the fiber Fabry–Perot interferometer with an evanescent light source protruding directly toward the sample. It was shown that such a probe provides a spatial resolution λ/40 for λ=1550nm. The fabrication process of such a probe is described in detail.
