A near-field structure of the semiconductor laser emission is revealed using image deconvolution of SNOM measurements. The comparison with the atomic-force microscope measurements of the emitting surface relief shows that inhomogenities of this structure are likely related to nano-scale inhomogeneities of the emitting laser surface. To retrieve the true structure of near-field laser emission taking into account the probe transfer function, the image deconvolution method based on the Tikhonov's method of generalized discrepancy was used. As a result, in the SNOM measurements small (3-4%) variations with a spatial size of about 50 nm have been discerned.
