Nanowires are more heterogeneous than anticipated

With few exceptions, optical investigations on nanowires have so far been carried out almost exclusively by conventional optical microscopy, which has limited spatial resolution. Researchers have now developed a new method, called tip-enhanced near-field microscopy, which makes use of a tapered metal tip as an optical antenna.
