We present a design of cylindrical hyperlens made of a layered binary material. The design approach uses an improved effective medium theory to take account of radius-dependent effects due to curvature of material interfaces resulting in nonperiodically distributed thicknesses of the lens layers. The performance of this lens is compared versus the designs with periodically thick layers, which we showed in earlier papers. Detailed quantitative results analyzed for the lenses with the same number and starting order of layers prove better functioning of the lens designed with this approach.
