Abstract

Recently [Sivan and Pendry, Phys. Rev. Lett. 106, 193902 (2011)], we have shown that the wave front of short pulses can be accurately and efficiently reversed by use of simple one-dimensional zero-gap photonic crystals. In this paper, we describe the analytical approach in detail, and discuss specific structures and modulation techniques as well as the required steps for achieving complete time reversal. We also show that our scheme is only very weakly sensitive to material losses and dispersion.
