Abstract:

We theoretically propose a novel scheme for sub-diffraction imaging based on a process of adiabatic decompression of the local wavelength of a surface plasmon polariton supported by two adjoining curved metal surfaces.n Fig.1a we show the layout of the proposed scheme. A metallic sphere is brought in close proximity of a second metallic interface.
