The properties of a lumped loaded wire array as a means for near field focusing using phase conjugation is studied. The constructive role of phase conjugation in the near field image formation is justified both analytically and numerically. The generation of phase conjugated energy and how this is influenced by lumped impedance loading of the wires constituting the lens is discussed. In particular it is shown that inductive loading of the constituent lens wire elements is essential for… CONTINUE READING
