Micro-fabrication of periodic structures was performed by holographic lithography technique in SU-8 photoresist using a simple and versatile experimental arrangement based on a diffractive beam-splitter. High-fidelity two- and three-dimensional microstructures fabricated with sub-micrometric resolution in large areas of approximately 1 mm diameter. The structures are potentially usable as elements of micro-fluidic systems (e.g., Brownian ratchets), and templates for photonic crystal devices (e.g., mirrors, collimators, superprisms).
