Abstract

An analytic solution for a magnetic line source imaged through a uniaxially anisotropic slab is derived for electric fields, and example results are supported by finite element simulations. The analytical result provides a convenient means to evaluate the effect of material parameters in applications. We introduce a spectrometer that can be realized by illuminating a slab composed of a Ag/ZnO multilayer stack through a small aperture, and we use this example to evaluate the performance of the analytic model.
