The two-dimensional problem of the evanescent wave scattering by dielectric or metallic cylinders near the interface between two dielectric media is solved. A semianalytical method involving a special Green function and a numerical solution of the boundary integral equations is proposed. A configuration with a circular and a prolate elliptic cylinders is suggested to simulate the sample and the probe in near-field optical microscopy. The far-field energy flux through the probe is calculated as a function of its position. The oscillations of the signal are interpreted as a result of the interference between evanescent and cylindrical waves.
