Abstract

The construction of the multifocal Veselago lens predicted earlier [Appl. Opt. 42, 5701 (2003)] is proposed on the basis of a uniaxial photonic crystal consisting of cylindrical air holes in silicon that make a triangular lattice in a plane perpendicular to the axis of the crystal. The object and images are in air. The period of the crystal should be 0.44 μ m to work at the wavelength 1.5 μ m . The lens does not provide superlensing, but the halfwidth of the image is 0.5 λ . The lens is shown to have wave-guiding properties, depending on the substrate material.
