In this paper a finite-difference time-domain method is used to model and analyze the application of dynamic scanning in target detection and imaging by using an effective negative-refraction photonic crystal (NR-PC) flat lens. The results show that there is a transmission peak, with a value far greater than unity, resulting from the influence of mini-forbidden bands and resonance excitation effect at a resonance frequency of 0.3068(a/λ). Thus, the lightwave emitted from the point source will

Furthermore, a comparison with a non-dynamic scanning scheme clearly demonstrates that the dynamic scanning scheme provides improved refocusing resolution. In conclusion, our investigation optimized the performance of a detection and imaging system, and provided the basis for converting an idealized LHM lens into a physically realizable NR-PC flat lens. negative effective index, dynamic scanning, scattering signal, refocusing resolution Citation: Meng W J, Cao H, Shen T G, et al.
