We investigated the initial stage of Zn dot growth using near-field optical chemical vapor deposition. The dependence of the rate of Zn dot deposition on dot size revealed that the deposition rate was maximal when the dot grew to a size equivalent to the probe apex diameter. Such observed size-dependent resonance was in good agreement with theoretical results for dipole-dipole coupling with a Forster field between the deposited Zn dot and the probe apex.
