Experimental results are presented for the focusing capability of an active phase conjugating lens for a single and a dipole source pair and these are compared with predictions. In addition for a single source we illustrate the ability of the lens to project a null at the lens focus instead of a peak. A scheme is also presented such that when a source or pair of sources is imaged through an identical pair of passive scatterers located symmetrically about the lens that imaging with sub-wavelength resolution is possible. The rationale for the operation of the lens and aberrations observed due to its finite array size is discussed and is supported throughout by means of numerical simulation.
