We show that a single-interface between regular and double-negative (DNG) media constitutes the core structure of a perfect lens and, furthermore, substantially outperforms the highly discussed DNG slab-based lens under imperfect conditions, maintaining unbounded resolution. We identify the perfect-lensing mechanism as the excitation of a Brewster (real improper) mode at the interface - a mode with a completely flat-band dispersion at media-matching conditions, perfectly transferring all…

Subdiffraction-limited imaging based on longitudinal modes in a spatially dispersive slab
It was proposed that a flat silver layer could be used to form a sub-diffraction limited image when illuminated near its surface plasmon resonance frequency [J. B. Pendry, Phys. Rev. Lett. 86, 3966
