A solid immersion lens (SIL) combined with near-field probes was designed for optical recording using 3D finite difference time domain method. The optical properties of near-field distributions between the SIL probe and recording layers were also investigated. An approach for fabricating a type of the SIL-probe system was proposed. It is found that the electric field leaking from the base and conic side of the SIL-probe system is much stronger than the output of the probe apex.
