We consider the focusing performance of a radially polarized sinh-Gaussian beam. The sinh-Gaussian beam can be considered as superposition of a series of eccentric Gaussian beam. Based on the Richards-Wolf formulas, high beam quality and subwavelength focusing are achieved for the radially polarized incident sinh-Gaussian beam. Therefore, sinh-Gaussian beam can be applied in the focusing system with high numerical aperture to achieve focusing with superresolution.
