Paper Abstract

We analyse the silver multilayer superlens as a modulating photonic device for spatial reshapment of circularly polarised light beams. The silver flat lens of Pendry and its generalisations to multilayer structures have been primarily introduced for in-plane perfect near-field imaging that includes a limited range of evanescent spatial harmonics of the field. In this paper, using the fully vectorial transfer matrix method we analyse the two-dimensional impulse response of the imperfect superlens for spatial and temporal filtering of the optical signal and on this basis investigate the way it modifies the shape of the beam.
