A versatile THz/IR near field microscope is demonstrated. Collecting the scattered light from a THz in-situ subwavelength source, this microscope provides images with resolution better than lambda/10. The physical origin of the contrast is explained by a Mie scattering diffraction model. Owing to the classical nature of this microscope working in the near field, resolution of THz/IR images is improved using deconvolution process.
