Abstract

In this paper, we experimentally demonstrate and compare single-exposure multiple-beam interference lithography based on conventional laser interference, evanescent wave interference, and surface plasmon interference. The proposed two-beam and four-beam interference approaches are carried out theoretically and verified experimentally, employing the proposed configurations so as to realize the patterning of one- and two-dimensional periodic features on photoresists. A custom-fabricated grating is employed in the configuration in order to achieve two- and four-beam interference.
