Electromagnetic modes of Maxwell fisheye lens

  • H. Rosu
  • M. Reyes


We provide an analysis of the radial structure ofTE andTM modes of the Maxwell fisheye lens, by means of Maxwell equations as applied to the fisheye case. Choosing a lens of sizeR=1 cm, we plotted some of the modes in the infrared range.
