Reflectionless evanescent-wave amplification by two dielectric planar waveguides

Utilizing the underlying physics of evanescent-wave amplification by a negative-refractive-index slab, it is shown that evanescent waves with specific spatial frequencies can also be amplified without any reflection simply by two dielectric planar waveguides. The simple configuration allows one to take advantage of the high resolution limit of a high-refractive-index material without contact with the object. © 2006 Optical Society of America.
