McArdle, P.; Lahneman, D. J.; Biswas, Amlan; Keilmann, F. and Qazilbash, M. M. (2020): Near-field infrared nanospectroscopy of surface phonon-polariton resonances. In: Physical Review Research, Vol. 2, No. 2, 023272

We present combined experimental and numerical work on light-matter interactions at nanometer length scales. We report numerical simulations of near-field infrared nanospectroscopy that consider detailed tip geometry and have no free parameters. Our results match published spectral shapes of amplitude and phase measurements even for strongly resonant surface phonon-polariton (SPhP) modes. They also verify published absolute scattering amplitudes. A unique, ultrabroadband light source enables near-field amplitude and phase acquisition into the far-infrared spectral range. This allowed us to discover a strong SPhP resonance in the polar dielectric SrTiO3 (STO) at an similar to 24-mu m wavelength of incident light.
