FIG. 1.

Experimental setup. The pulsed laser (532 nm, repetition frequency 10 Hz, and fluence ), whose spot is shaped by a SLM in amplitude configuration (by using the two crossed polarizers P1 and P2), pumps a single titanium dioxide cluster (diameter between 5 and 12 μm). The RL emission is collected by a microscope objective (OBJ) to be imaged by using a beamsplitter (BS) in two different image planes. In one of them lies a fiber controlled by translators with nanometric resolution that allows the measurement of the spatio-spectral map. In this way it is possible to scan a magnified (50×) image of the sample and measure the spectra emitted from a single point. The fibre core (50 μm in diameter) collects spectra originating in an area of 1 μm of diameter of the sample. The other light path allows imaging the sample on a CCD.
