Abstract

We describe the most general homogenous, planar, light-ray-direction-changing sheet that performs one-to-one imaging between object space and image space. This is a nontrivial special case (of the sheet being homogenous) of an earlier result [Opt. Commun. 282, 2480 (2009)]. Such a sheet can be realized, approximately, with generalized confocal lenslet arrays.
