Self-collimations are found in one-dimensional (1D) photonic crystals consisting of two kinds of single-negative materials that effectively cancel each other out. Compared to the self-collimations in all-dielectric photonic crystals or 1D photonic crystals with negative-index materials, this kind of structure can amplify both far and near fields greatly during collimation.
