Nanohole array as a lens

Nanohole array as a lens
Nanohole array as a lens
Here we theoretically demonstrate that a quasi-crystal array of nanoholes in a metal screen can perform the function of a lens: one-to-one imaging of a point source located a few tens of wavelengths away from the array to a point on the other side of the array. A displacement of the point source leads to a linear displacement of the image point. Complex structures composed of multiple point sources can be faithfully imaged with resolutions comparable to those of high numerical aperture lenses.

Abstract

Here we theoretically demonstrate that a quasi-crystal array of nanoholes in a metal screen can perform the function of a lens: one-to-one imaging of a point source located a few tens of wavelengths away from the array to a point on the other side of the array. A displacement of the point source leads to a linear displacement of the image point. Complex structures composed of multiple point sources can be faithfully imaged with resolutions comparable to those of high numerical aperture lenses.
