Abstract
We discuss the concept of resolution in the context of our recent work [Opt. Express 17, 19969-19980 (2009)] in which the realization of a point-like scanning single photon near-field source (based on a single color center in a nano-diamond) was reported. We compare this new near-field optical microscope (NSOM) probe with usual aperture-NSOM probes. We conclude that the nanodiamond-based NSOM microscope has a resolving power which is only limited by the scan height over the imaged system. This contrasts with the aperture-NSOM resolution which also critically depends on the aperture diameter.
