Decades ago, Veselago1 predicted that a material with simultaneously negative electric and magnetic polarization responses would yield a ‘left-handed’ medium in which light propagates with opposite phase and energy velocities—a condition described by a negative refractive index. He proposed that a flat slab of left-handed material possessing an isotropic refractive index of −1 could act like an imaging lens in free space. Left-handed materials do not occur naturally, and it has only recently become possible to achieve a left-handed response using metamaterials, that is, electromagnetic structures engineered on subwavelength scales to elicit tailored polarization responses. So far, left-handed responses have typically been implemented using resonant metamaterials composed of periodic arrays of unit cells containing inductive–capacitive resonators and conductive wires. Negative refractive indices that are isotropic in two2 or three3 dimensions at microwave frequencies have been achieved in resonant metamaterials with centimetre-scale features. Scaling the left-handed response to higher frequencies, such as infrared or visible, has been done by shrinking critical dimensions to submicrometre scales by means of top-down nanofabrication4. This miniaturization has, however, so far been achieved at the cost of reduced unit-cell symmetry, yielding a refractive index that is negative along only one axis. Moreover, lithographic scaling limits have so far precluded the fabrication of resonant metamaterials with left-handed responses at frequencies beyond the visible5. Here we report the experimental implementation of a bulk metamaterial with a left-handed response to ultraviolet light. The structure, based on stacked plasmonic waveguides6, yields an omnidirectional left-handed response for transverse magnetic polarization characterized by a negative refractive index. By engineering the structure to have a refractive index close to −1 over a broad angular range, we achieve Veselago flat lensing, in free space, of arbitrarily shaped, two-dimensional objects beyond the near field. We further demonstrate active, all-optical modulation of the image transferred by the flat lens.

Various parts of shoes of different materials, so a different approach tilt. But no matter what kind of athletic shoes have a point is: shoe cleaning, soaking time generally should not exceed 20 minutes; while genuine leather shoes can not be soaked in water. Washed should choose a cool ventilated place to dry, avoid exposure. Leather categories: water easily deformable material. When there is dirt or dust, use a clean, soft, damp cloth, then wipe the leather care agent maintenance. Suede categories: water easily deformed material. When there is dirt or dust can be removed with a soft brush. After using suede leather care agent, you can protect their character. Mesh categories: neutral detergent, soft hair brushing. Wet cleaning not exposure, or vulnerable to fading or yellowing. Synthetic leather categories: Use a clean, soft, damp cloth to wipe clean. When necessary, scrub with a mild detergent and wipe clean. Process categories: some reflective material used for printing or eagerly process, wearing or brushing process or do not use too much force strong brush, but can not touch them with your fingernail or sharp corners of the printed pattern. Dressed in a period of time, some of the patterned surface may be some small cracks (in particular, often tortuous portion), which are normal. EVA midsole material commonly used. For general stains can be cleaned using only drawing eraser; moderate stains then use a soft brush to take a neutral detergent scrub and wash thoroughly with water, drying. Outsole direct contact with the ground, shading may be embedded in gravel and other foreign matter. Even then we must clean up the depth side of the sole cause damage. When cleaning the soles, you can choose a slightly harder brush, neutral detergent to scrub and thoroughly wipe.
