Nanophotonics has recently achieved new dimensions in several aspects of nanoscience, such as nano-imaging, nano-analysis or even nano-manipulation of several kinds of samples ranging from semiconductors to biomolecules. The interaction volume between light and sample is classically restricted by so-called diffraction limit of light, which is about half of the wavelength of the probing light. We have jumped aver this classical limit in several nanophotonics technologies, such as in fabrication, in analysis and in imaging of samples at nanoscale, and have shown how light can interact with materials in a volume much smaller than the diffraction limits.
