Evanescent waves play a growing role in many different areas, such as guided optics, optical-fiber couplers, integrated optical elements, internal reflection spectroscopy, atom optics, dark-field microscopy, scanning tunneling optical microscopy, microaperture microscopy, and apertureless microscopies. This book describes the near field of an object through the role of the evanescent field in these areas of research. Intended as a reference for scientists and as an introduction at the graduate level.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the first edition:

"Evanescent waves play a growing role in many different areas such as guided optics, optical fiber couplers, integrated optical elements, internal reflection spectroscopy, atom optics, dark-field microscopy, and many others. The intent of this book is to describe the near-field associated with different optical systems. ... the author succeeds to give an excellent review of the field and the book is really a unique one. It is intended as a reference for scientist and as an introduction at the graduate level." (A. Tresch, Optik, Vol. 113 (2), 2002)

"Recently the features of the behavior of optical electromagnetic waves close to the surface of solid state in the so-called near-field region, i.e., where the distance to the object remains smaller than the wavelength of the light, attracted much attention. ... The book is illustrated with plenty of examples and is easy to read. It can be a good guide-book for students and postgraduates and is of interest for physicists, theoreticians and experimentalists, newcomers to this field." (A. Bukharaev, Applied Magnetic Resonance, Vol. 21 (2), 2001)
