Abstract

A scanning plasmon optical microscope has been operated with an atomic force microscope rather than a scanning tunnel microscope to scan a surface. The instrument produced a nanoscale optical image of dye-molecule crystals adsorbed on a silver film. Images of dye-molecule crystal islands are presented.
