Parabolic mirror-assisted tip-enhanced spectroscopic imaging of non-transparent samples is reported. Correlated topography as well as Raman and photoluminescence imaging of nanometer-sized domains composing of different chemical components in blended organic solar cell films are successfully achieved. Furthermore the plasmonic properties of Au nano cones are demonstrated using the tip-enhanced luminescence imaging technique.
