Abstract
We examine the optical near-field interaction between different types of scanning tips and single oriented fluorescent molecules. We demonstrate the influence of a tip on the excitation intensity as well as on the integrated fluorescence signal, the excited state lifetime, and the angular emission of single molecules. By using a standard model describing the radiation of an oscillating dipole close to a nanosphere or a flat interface, we interpret our observations and describe some central criteria for obtaining fluorescence enhancement or quenching.
