New superlens can show ‘invisible’ objects

New York, May 24 A new hyperlens can help us see tiny objects that elude even the most powerful optical systems.

Called a metamaterial hyperlens, the lens may someday help detect some of the most lethal forms of cancer.

“Today’s high-resolution endoscopes can resolve objects to about 10,000 nanometers. The hyperlens could improve that to at least 250 nanometers or better,” said lead author Natalia Litchinitser from University at Buffalo (UB).
