We present what we believe to be a new method for correcting the joint error of a laser writer without reduction of throughput. By digitization, we optimize the intensity data of the incident beam at the vicinity of the start point and the end point. The joint error will not be sensitive to lengthening of the start or end point by optimization. The advantage of this method over multipass writing and error scattering is that it requires only a single pass, and thus 80% of the fabrication time will be saved. Experimentation shows the method to be effective.
