Abstract

In image transfer, one aims to reproduce at an image plane the field distribution of the field at the source plane. We consider a near-field image transfer scheme where an image with subwavelength resolution can be transferred to a metal–dielectric interface. In this scheme, the presence of a surface plasmon polariton provides a large wave vector range where the transfer function is flat, thus enabling the image transfer with subwavelength resolution.
