Abstract

In this Letter, we show how to obtain high-contrast wide-field evanescent wave illuminated subdiffraction imaging through controlling nanoscale light–matter interaction. The light coupling, propagation, and far-field imaging processes show strong polarization selectivity and film quality dependence, which is used to improve the image-contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) and to enlarge the field of view (FOV). We demonstrate experimentally high CNR subdiffraction imaging with lateral resolution of 122 nm and FOV of thousands of micrometers square.
