We have put together the diagram below to explain the advantage of optical resolution in the near-field over the resolution of diffraction-limited optics.  As shown below, in diffraction limited optics the resolution is limited to approximately half the wavelength of light.  But by operating in the near-field, the resolution improves significantly to less than 100nm
