The concepts of near-field optical microscopy and experimental and theoretical work carried out in Switzerland over the last 10 years are reviewed. After a description of the pioneering experiments of the mid-1980s, we focus on the recent efforts of the three Swiss laboratories currently working in the field in close collaboration. This newly refreshed initiative in near-field optics is supported by the Swiss Priority Program Optique.
