Abstract: In this paper we propose a new paradigm to create superlenses inspired by n–p–n junctions of graphene.We show that by adjoining an n-type region and a p-type region with a crystal dislocation, it is possible to mimic the interaction of complementary Hamiltonians and achieve subwavelength imaging.We introduce an effective model of the system, and show that it predicts perfect lensing for both propagating and evanescent waves due to the excitation of a resonant mode at the interface between each region. This phenomenon is the consequence of a nontrivial boundary condition at the n–p interfaces due to a dislocation of the graphene ‘atoms’.We discuss practical realizations of such superlenses in electronic and photonic platforms. Using full wave simulations, we study in detail the performance of a photonic realization of the lens based on a honeycomb array of dielectric cylinders embedded in a metal.
