Abstract

We report the use of a (4+1)-beam optical interference holography technique to fabricate woodpile structures in photo-resists. The configuration consists of 4 linearly polarized side beams arranged symmetrically around a circularly polarized central beam with all the beams from the same half space, making it easily accessible experimentally. The fabricated woodpile structures are in good agreement with model simulations. Furthermore, woodpiles with the diamond symmetry are also obtained by exploiting the shrinkage of the photo-resists. Bandgaps in the visible range are also observed for the samples with and without the correct stacking of the woodpile structures.

(a). (4+1)-beam configuration for the woodpile structure. (b) Superposition of x-rods and y-rods obtained by the interference of ( k 0, k 2, k 4) and ( k 0, k 1, k 3), respectively. (c) Woodpile structure shown as intensity contour surfaces with a 50% cut-off by the interference of ( k 0, k 1, k 2, k 3, k 4) beams with equal phases and using φ=41.8°. The structure is compressed by 40% and expanded by 10% along the z and in the xy-directions, respectively, to simulate the deformations observed in the experiment. (Same result is obtained using φ=70.53° but without the deformations as reported in Ref. [38].) The insets, upper-right (50% cut-off) and lower-right (95% cut-off), are views of the top and the unit cell of the diamond structure, respectively. (d) Contour surfaces with a 40% intensity cut-off for the 5-beam interference similar to (c) but with k 2 180° out of phase w.r.t. the other beams. The insets, upper-right (40% cut-off) and lower-right (60% cut-off), are views of the top and the unit cell, respectively.

(a). 3D SEM image of woodpile structure. The upper-left inset shows the expanded view of the woodpile structure. (b)–(d) SEM images for the woodpile structures with a/b=0.72, 0.88, and 0.82, respectively. Note that (b) and (c) show the favorable results with the x- and y-rods properly interlaced while (d) shows the unfavorable result with the x-and y-rods in the same plane for each layer. The upper-right insets (size 1.5×1.0µm2) are the expanded front views while the lower-left insets (size 1.8×1.8µm2) are the top views of the structures. The scale bars (white) are all 1.0 µm.

(a)-(c). Normal reflectance (in blue) and transmittance (in red) for the samples in Fig. 2(b)-(d), respectively. The insets are white light reflection photos. The dashed circles (17 µm diameter) are regions where optical spectra are obtained.
