This study proposes an innovative device called 'Hybrid-Superlens Hyperlens' with superresolution imaging ability and confirms it by using simulation. This device consists of two multilayered metal-dielectric anisotropic metamaterials: the upper planar superlens and the lower cylindrical hyperlens with different signs in their dielectric tensors and different isofrequency dispersion curves. In our simulation, 100-nm center-to-center resolution is obtained by using an incident wavelength of 405 nm, which is smaller than the optical diffraction limit.
