Abstract

A solid immersion lens (SIL) has the advantage of easily decreasing the spot size for high data density in optical recording. To accurately obtain the optical tunneling effect for a high-N.A. SIL, we calculated the optical tunneling beam characteristics, using electromagnetic theory. Tunneling beam spot-size dependence on polarization direction and energy-transfer efficiency are also clearly shown.
