Abstract

The applications of terahertz (THz) imaging are always restricted by the low resolution. We introduce here a new way to realize far-field superresolution imaging at THz frequency. Assisted by a new spoof surface plasmons (SSP) probe illumination, the images of two subwavelength separated slits can be reconstructed by a single shot. Although only 0.06λ resolution is numerically demonstrated at 0.3 THz, the resolution potentially can be further enhanced by scaling down the size of the SSP probe. Deep subwavelength focusing is also achieved by the SSP probe. Our work may open a new avenue for SSP-based superresolution at longer wavelengths.
