Figure 2

(a) Angular diagram setup. A laser light is injected into a SNOM tip and a photomultiplier tube collects the emitted light, scanning the region in front of the tip at 180°. The SNOM tip is then rotated at different angles around itself and the scan repeated. (b) Typical angular diagram of a good quality SNOM tip. P.M refers to photomultiplier tube.
