An intense laser probe 10 μm in diameter was formed on a specimen under transmission electron microscopy (TEM). A metal tip covered with a silver layer, of which apex was 60 nm in diameter, was placed on an arbitrary position in the laser probe, and a near-field light was induced at the apex by a tip-enhanced effect. With these light probes, micro- and near-field photo-excitation was demonstrated under TEM.
