Abstract

Pattern-integrated interference (PII) is described as a logical progression starting from the primary precursors of interference and holography. PII produces, in a single-exposure step, a periodic interference pattern with preselected periods absent. These blocked periods, for example, can form the nonperiodic functional elements of a photonic-crystal device or the circuit elements in a periodic-layout-design semiconductor chip. Various possible system configurations for PII are presented and compared. Example PII-produced intensity patterns for a photonic-crystal microresonator filter and an optical switch are simulated and discussed.
