Transmission enhancement via transverse mode control through an aluminum hollow tapered waveguide with a sub-100 nm aperture is simulated with optical wavefront modulations via a binary optical element. Efficient delivery of an input field by exciting the fundamental propagating mode near the apex is realized, giving rise to a significant transmission enhancement through the nano-tip.
