We recognize that the phase control of optical transfer function is profoundly important in realizing nanoimaging beyond the diffraction limit. The difficulty of the optical phase measurement in the near field, required for the conventional adaptive control method, motivates us to achieve active phase control in the superlens imaging system. The visibility and resolving capabilities are significantly enhanced through the index mismatch approach by tuning the wavelength of the incident light.
