Abstract

The different zones of the lens aperture of a perfect lens are masked by polarization devices. The central circular zone of the lens aperture is masked by one polarizer, and the outer annular zone is masked by another polarizer. These two polarizers are at two different orientations. An analyzer is placed at the output side. It is seen that the optical transfer function (OTF) of such a system depends on the state of polarization of the input beam, the orientation of the analyzer placed at the output side, the radius of the central-circular-zone mask, and the orientation of the masks. In this paper, variation of the OTF of such a system with the orientation of the outer-annular-zone mask is studied.
