Title: Femtosecond laser interference technique with diffractive beam splitter for fabrication of three-dimensional photonic crystals

Abstract

A simple optical interference method to fabricate microperiodic structures was demonstrated. Femtosecond laser pulse was split by a diffractive beam splitter and overlapped with two lenses. Temporal overlap of the split femtosecond pulses, which requires 10 {mu}m order accuracy in optical path lengths, was automatically achieved by this optical setup. One-, two-, and three-dimensional periodic microstructures with micrometer-order periods were fabricated using this method. {copyright} 2001 American Institute of Physics.
