Optical Hyperlens: Far-field imaging beyond the diffraction limit

Opt Express. 2006 Sep 4;14(18):8247-56. doi: 10.1364/oe.14.008247.


We propose an approach to far-field optical imaging beyond the diffraction limit. The proposed system allows image magnification, is robust with respect to material losses and can be fabricated by adapting existing metamaterial technologies in a cylindrical geometry.
