We study optical binding of two dielectric nanoparticles near a boundary between air and hyperbolic metamaterial. Three kinds of modes contribution are analyzed and it is shown, that evanescent waves allow formation of stable bound dimer due to hyperbolic metamaterial modes. We have found the most profitable parameters of hyperbolic metamaterial substrate, providing enhancement of the optical binding effect.
