Apertureless near field measurements with a metallic tip are performed in the terahertz frequency range. Lateral scans are recorded for different time delays within a terahertz pulse. The forward scattered terahertz signal strongly depends on the time delay. At larger time delays, the tip-sample interaction leads to additional structures in the scan that do not correspond to a change in topography or dielectric function.
