Plasmonic superlensing in doped GaAs.

We demonstrate a semiconductor based broadband near-field superlens in the mid-infrared regime. Here, the Drude response of a highly doped n-GaAs layer induces a resonant enhancement of evanescent waves accompanied by a significantly improved spatial resolution at radiation wavelengths around λ = 20 μm, adjustable by changing the doping concentration.
