The progress of near-field optics research and its application in some Chinese universities and institutions is overviewed. The research activities on the instrumentation aspect of scanning near-field optical microscope, novel sample-tip regulation mechanism, fiber-tip preparations, high resolution imaging and near-field spectroscopy in confined mesoscopic systems, light emission new materials and devices, theoretical development of near-field light- matter interactions, new observations of physical phenomena in the near-field region, optical nanostructuring, are summarized. The current research projects and future prospective of the possible application of SNOM and near- field fluorescence imaging to biology, such as the in vitro cell nuclear assembly and apoptosis as well as gene recognition and DNA sequencing, and opto-electro devices are discussed.
