Abstract

The delivery of a super-oscillatory optical signal through a medium with an absorbing resonance at the super-oscillation frequency is considered theoretically and through simulations. While a regular signal oscillating at the absorption resonance frequency would be completely absorbed after a few absorption lengths, it is found that the superoscillation undergoes quasi-periodic revivals over optically thick distances. In particular revivals of extreme UV local oscillations propagating through Silica Glass over distances which are three orders of magnitude longer than the associated absorbing length are numerically demonstrated.
