Perfect imaging without negative refraction

Preprint English OPEN
Leonhardt, Ulf;
(2009)

Perfect imaging has been believed to rely on negative refraction, but here we show that an ordinary positively-refracting optical medium may form perfect images as well. In particular, we establish a mathematical proof that Maxwell's fish eye in two-dimensional integrat... View more
