  • In this work, we show the spatial distribution of the scattered electromagnetic field of dielectric particles by using a new super-resolution method based on polarization modulation. Applying this technique, we were able to resolve the multipolar distribution of a Cu2O particle with a radius of 450 nm. In addition, FDTD and Mie simulations have been carried out to validate and confirm the experimental results. The results are helpful to understand the resonant modes of dielectric submicron particles which have a broad range of potential applications, such as all-optical devices or nanoantennas.
