Plasmonics and near-field optical nanoscopy both deal with expanding optics into the subwavelength regime. However, these two fields have so far followed parallel paths of development and only recently have researchers started to explore combinations of their concepts with potential synergy. In this Perspective, we provide an up-to-date summary of the successful combinations reported and give insight into some new possibilities.
