Study Moves "Superlens" Closer to Reality

Abstract:
Physicists at Oregon State University have made an important advance towards the creation of a functional "superlens" - an extraordinary optical device that would bend light the opposite direction of that done by any natural material. In theory, a superlens might be able to attain visual resolution at the level of the nanometer.
