Abstract

Raman spectroscopy with subwavelength spatial resolution of a diamond sample was recorded using a tapered fiber optical probe in conjunction with a conventional Raman spectrometer. The experiment demonstrates the potential of suboptical wavelength resolution analytical spectroscopy. The tapered fiber optical probe with an aperture of around 100 nm, served as the means for delivering pump radiation while simultaneously collecting the Stokes radiation from the diamond specimen. Comparing the magnitude of the Raman scattering measured with the submicron single mode fiber probe to similar signals obtained with a nontapered probe made of the same type of fiber, illustrates the potential increase in effective optical aperture resulting from the close approach of the fiber to the surface.
