Comment on “Left-Handed Materials Do Not Make a Perfect Lens”


JB Pendry


In a recent Physical Review Letter [1] Garcia and Nieto Vesperinas (GNV) dispute the claim of perfect lensing made in [2]. The thrust of the GVN paper is that the solutions proposed in [2] imply infinite energy density and are therefore inadmissible. They claim that finite absorption leads to catastrophic collapse of the amplifying solutions vital to focussing and that no useful effect can be achieved. ….
