Abstract

Despite strong experimental and theoretical evidence supporting superresolution imaging based on microlenses, the imaging mechanisms involved are not well understood. Based on the transformation optics approach, we demonstrate that a microlens may act as a two-dimensional fish-eye or an inverted Eaton lens. An asymmetric inverted Eaton lens may exhibit considerable image magnification, which has been confirmed experimentally.
