We demonstrate the construction of diamond photonic crystal structures by the translation of a multi-beam interference pattern. Using phase shift of each beam, the double-exposed interference patterns can be aligned in the [111] direction for a face-centered cubic (FCC) and [210] direction for a body-centered cubic (BCC), respectively, producing diamond D from FCC and BCC-diamond like structure from BCC. The present result shows that the complete bandgap has been retained with slight deviation from ideal diamond symmetry.
