Whatever we are looking at, be it streaming video or medical imaging in the office, we always want the highest resolution possible. Traditional imaging techniques that use lenses, like telescopes and cameras, are “far-field” imaging systems, and their resolution has a practical limit, called the diffraction limit. In the near field, this restriction is relaxed and subwavelength focusing is possible. This has been demonstrated in free space, but many practical applications require focusing inside of an inhomogeneous environment, such as the human body for medical imaging. In this presentation, we demonstrate a new method for simulating near-field plates designed to work in prescribed environments.
- Overview of near-field imaging
- Why accounting for the local environment is necessary
- How to design near-field plates for a prescribed environment
Who Should Attend:
- Professionals interested in imaging and sensing applications.
Subwavelength focusing in an inhomogeneous environment.
