Abstract

A new lens that is a modification of the Veselago lens is proposed. It consists of a slab of the left-handed material embedded into a regular material. The materials for the new lens should have the same refractive index, unlike that of the Veselago lens in which the materials should in addition have the same impedance. Therefore the new lens should be easier to manufacture. As the Veselago lens, the new lens might be useful for the three dimensional imaging. In contrast to the Veselago lens the new lens has multiple foci, and it may image an object that is located at any large distance from the slab.
