Abstract

A compact mechanical package is developed for a standard microscope that implements a solid immersion lens (SIL) on a retractable bimorph swing arm. With the compact package mounted on an inverted microscope, far-field and near-field images are obtained at the same location by moving the SIL in place with the swing arm. With white-light incoherent illumination, the resolution of this system for observing digital versatile discs (DVDs) is around 200nm with an effective NA of 1.5. Imaging with the SIL is compared to an atomic force microscopy (AFM) scan.
