It has been shown recently that a configuration combining near field detection and Fabry-Perot resonator offers a solution for increasing the signal to noise ratio. In this communication we use this conference as an interferometric imaging device. The basic idea behind this concept is that one way for enhancing the low sensitivity of such microscopes could consist of increasing the field intensity between tip and sample by either using a multi-reflection system such as a classical Fabry-Perot cavity or by using some more sophisticated multi-reflection devices.
