In science:

This point is assumed to be the contact point between the NSOM probe and the SIL.
Measurement of the separation dependence of resonant energy transfer between CdSe/ZnS core/shell nanocrystallite quantum dots
These photons are collected through the SIL and sent to a spectrometer generating the high energy peak of the spectrum in Fig. 2.
Measurement of the separation dependence of resonant energy transfer between CdSe/ZnS core/shell nanocrystallite quantum dots
This interaction, associated to the non-radiative energy transfer from the ground state of the small NQDs to the third excited state of the large NQDs, becomes increasingly more important as the separation between the NSOM probe and the SIL decreases,10 within the near-field region.
Measurement of the separation dependence of resonant energy transfer between CdSe/ZnS core/shell nanocrystallite quantum dots
The corresponding enhancement in the large NQDs PL signal was not observed as the number of NQDs on the SIL were not under control.
Measurement of the separation dependence of resonant energy transfer between CdSe/ZnS core/shell nanocrystallite quantum dots
Enhancement of large NQDs PL signal was not observed as a consequence of the deposition process of the large NQDs on the SIL, see Fig.4.
