28 June 1999 Aperture formation and mechanism of super-RENS
Author Affiliations +
The formation and mechanism of nanometer sized apertures of super-resolution nearfield structure (Super-RENS) was thermally, mechanically and optically investigated. An aperture of an antimony film forced in a high compressive stress showed the resolution of less than 100 nm, whereas the film forced in a tensile stress did not. An aperture formation mechanism is proposed by balance between the aperture formation energy and the surface energy including the internal stresses.
