Abstract
The aim of this representation is to show that by using near field optical microscopes it is possible to obtain results about the optical cladding surface of optical fibers. We used two near field microscopes: a Shear-Force Microscope and the Photon Scanning Tunneling Microscope. We will discuss the effect of the aging and of the process of stripping on the microstructures observed on the two kinds of images: topographical and optical.
