Abstract

An ultraviolet two-spherical-wave interferometer was developed in order to make a subwavelength structured surface on a curved surface. The change in fringe period on the curved surface was significantly suppressed compared with the two-plane-wave interferometer. The optical setup method for suppressing the change in fringe period is described. The effect of the two-spherical-wave interferometer was investigated by numerical simulations. In an experimental demonstration for a concave spherical surface with 11.1 mm radius of curvature and 10 mm diameter, the change in period of the photoresist pattern was reduced to 12 nm for the target period of 250 nm .
