Here, we surpass the diffraction limit of light by a new class of all-dielectric artificial materials that are lossless. This overcomes one of the fundamental challenges of light confinement in metamaterials and plasmonics: metallic loss. Our approach relies on controlling the optical momentum of evanescent waves as opposed to conventional photonic devices which manipulate propagating waves. This leads to a counterintuitive confinement strategy for electromagnetic waves across the entire spectrum. We introduce two distinct photonic design principles that can ideally lead to sub-diffraction light confinement without metal. They are i) relaxed total internal reflection and ii) photonic skin-depth engineering. We present initial experimental results on a CMOS compatible platform that prove the enhanced confinement of our all-dielectric metamaterial design.
