We discuss super-lensing in composite media, i.e., the possibility of imaging an arbitrary object without imposing any conditions on size of the object and the wave length. We are particularly interested in lenses made of hyperbolic metamaterials and propose two devices that exhibit superlensing properties. This is joint work with Hoai-Min Nguyen (EPFL).
