Abstract

The performance of an optical hyperlens made of metal–dielectric layers can be improved by incorporating self-focusing nonlinearity in the dielectric layers. Using a modified beam propagation method in cylindrical coordinates, we show increased bandwidth and better propagation length, which can improve the spatial and temporal resolution of the device.
