Abstract

We propose and design a kind of annular focusing lens based on transformation optics. Based on the method of eigen-mode expansions, closed-form expressions are derived to analyze the proposed annular lens rigorously. We show that the annular lens has excellent focusing property. Even when a barrier (such as a conducting cylinder) exists in the center of the lens, the analytical results demonstrate that the waves are still guided to propagate smoothly and focused on a spot.
