We show that anisotropic negative effective dispersion relation can be achieved in pure dielectric rod-type metamaterials by turning from the symmetry of a square lattice to that of a rectangular one. Theoretical predictions and conclusions are verified by both numerical calculations and computer based simulations. The proposed anisotropic metamaterial, is used to construct a refocusing slab lens and a subdiffraction hyperlens. The all-dielectric origin makes it more straightforward to address loss and scaling, thus facilitating future applications in both the terahertz and optical range.

    The quality (Q) factor of metamaterial resonances is limited by the radiative and non-radiative losses. At terahertz frequencies, the dominant loss channel is radiative in nature since the non-radiative losses are low due to high conductivity of metals. Radiative losses could be suppressed by...
