Abstract

We propose a vortex-like metamaterial device that is capable of transferring image along a spiral route without losing subwavelength information of the image. The super-resolution image can be guided and magnified at the same time with one single design. Our design may provide insights in manipulating super-resolution image in a more flexible manner. Examples are given and illustrated with numerical simulations.

The distribution of magnetic energy density of a 2D transverse magnetic (TM) excitation for a 2D layered hyperlens [(a)–(c)] and the corresponding effective anisotropic medium [(d)–(f)], respectively. Three cases of different angles of rotation Δθ = 135°, 180° and 225° are considered. The point source is placed at the input plane of θ = θ1 = 0°, and the distance rs = 0.2λ away from the origin of the hyperlens. The oblique angle is taken as α = 18° and ra = 0.1λ, rc = 0.4λ.
