Super resolution optical near-field structure (super-RENS) is a useful new technique for the effective ultrahigh density near-field recording without diffraction limit. The SiN/Sb/SiN thin films provide a platform for the enhanced surface plasmon effects. The non-linearity of the photothermal transfer from the interface of Sb/SiN to the GeSbTe recording layer determines the effective threshold of the transition power. Recording marks less than 100 nm can be attained by adjusting the input laser power or the spacing layer of SiN.
