Abstract
Advanced technology in the fabrication of submicrometer sized device leads to the realization of near field optical microscopes with super-resolution beyond the diffraction limit [l-4]. A photon scanning tunneling microscope ( PSTM ) is a type of the near field optical microscope picking-up the evanescent light around the sample surface which is generated under total internal reflection and modulated by the sample[5,6] .
