We develop a new approach to negative index materials and
subwavelength imaging in the far field based on
strong anisotropy of the dielectric response. In contrast to
conventional negative refraction systems, our method does not rely on
magnetic resonance and does not require periodic patterning--leading
to lower losses and high tolerance to fabrication defects.
