Abstract
We propose a new method of local illumination based on the activation of glass substrates, enables us to drive fluorescence investigations on biological sample at nanometric scale. This local fluorescence excitation is achieved through a non-radiative energy transfer. We demonstrate the potentiality of our technique through two biological relevant applications: imaging of the cell adhesion points and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy in a sub-diffracted volume (attoliter range).
