The Au-hole with a diameter of 200 nm is made by the simple nanosphere-lithography: polystyrene beads of a corresponding diameter are dispersed onto the Si-wafer, and is coated with an Au film of thickness of 50 nm by thermal evaporation coating, and the bead is removed by sonicating in dichloromethane (CH 2 Cl 2 ). This procedure yields randomly distributed nano-holes with a well-defined diameter. To minimize the tip-induced perturbation (shift in resonance frequency and distortion of the recorded field) in sSNOM, 5 we use weakly scattering Si-tip (tapping mode), and use the cross-polarization geometry in which excitation light is polarized orthogonal to the tip-axis ( s -polarized) and only the scattered light that is polarized near-parallel to the tipaxis ( p -polarized) is detected.
