The optical nonlinear properties of the SiN/Sb/SiN thin film are investigated. Imaging results of the near-field intensity gradients showed the intensity of the focused spot through the glass/SiN(170 nm)/Sb(15 nm)/SiN(20 nm) sample included both propagating and evanescent field intensity. The surface plasmons of the Sb/SiN interface excited by the focused laser beam play an important role in the near-field optical recording of super resolution optical near-field structure. The focused spot sizes of the evanescent field intensity can be manipulated by the detecting sensitivity of photomultiplier tube, while the focused spot sizes of the propagating intensity remained the same for different sensitivity.
