In this paper results of experiments with a scanning near-field optical microscope with shear-force feedback are presented. The setup will be described and the shear-force signal as function of distance is shown. Images of latex spheres and Langmuir- Blodgett layers of pentacosa-acid with about 100 nm lateral resolution are presented which show a true optical contrast due to fluorescence and polarization.
