The appearance of a Nano-jet in the microsphere optical experiments is analyzed by relating this effect to non-diffracting Bessel beams. By inserting a circular aperture with a radius of subwavelength dimension in the EM waist, and sending the transmitted light into a confocal microscope, the EM oscillations by the different Bessel beams are avoided. On this constant EM field evanescent waves are superposed. While this effect improves the optical-depth of the imaging process, the object fine-structures are obtained, from the modulation of the EM fields by the evanescent waves. The use of a combination of the microsphere optical system with an interferometer for phase contrast measurements is described.
