We have observed single vortices in a NbTiN thin film by using magneto-optical (MO) imaging method, in which the light reflected from the surface of the sample produces MO contrasts. The gap between the sample and the indicator film is estimated by the Newton ring and curve fitting to the flux density profile of single vortices.
