A photonic nanojet is a highly focused optical beam with a subwavelength waist on the shadow side of the sphere. Successful far-field applications require long nanojets that extend afar. Using the exact Mie theory, we show that ultralong nanojets can be generated using a simple two-layer microsphere structure, using conventional optical materials that are readily available. In particular, we show that for a glass-based two-layer microsphere, the nanojet has an extension of 22 wavelengths. Wedoi:10.1364/ol.39.004120 pmid:25121666 fatcat:dtepke243feyph622f5e3l77ya
