Abstract

The periodic bullet-like and cone-like submicron grating (SMG) structures on germanium (Ge) substrates were fabricated by dry etching processes via laser interference lithography. Their optical reflectance characteristics as well as the wettability of the surface were investigated. The wide cone-like Ge SMG structure exhibited a lower reflectance than that of the narrow bullet-like Ge SMG structure at wavelengths of 300–1100 nm due to its relatively high volume fraction and the more linearly graded effective refractive index distribution between air and the Ge substrate. As the period of cone-like Ge SMGs was increased, the low reflectance band of < 10 % was shifted toward the longer-wavelength region and its minimum value became slightly higher. The fabricated Ge SMG structures showed a hydrophobic surface property with contact angles of 90.7–102.5°. For theoretical analysis, the reflectance calculations were also performed by a rigorous coupled-wave analysis simulation, which indicated a similar trend to the experimental results.
