Planar Lensing Lithography: Enhancing the Optical Near Field.
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2006)
In 2000, a controversial paper by John Pendry surmised that a slab of negative index material could act as a perfect lens, projecting images with resolution detail beyond the limits of conventional lensing systems. A ...
Combining Zinc Oxide and Silver for Potential Optoelectronic Applications
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2010)
Semiconductors represent the enabling technology that underpins the many advances that define modern society. One semiconductor that shows considerable promise in the fabrication of new devices is zinc oxide (ZnO). A ...
Improving imaging performance in planar superlenses
(University of Canterbury. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2011)
The aim of this project was to improve the imaging performance of planar superlenses for evanescent near-field lithography. An experimental investigation of the performance of superlenses with reduced surface roughness ...
Optical Superlenses: Quality and Fidelity in Silver-Dielectric Near-Field Imaging Systems
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, 2011)
In the year 2000 John Pendry described a new kind of lens that could focus both the propagating and evanescent components of light. This ‘super’ lens, which took the form of a thin slab of silver with a negative effective ...
