Using direct laser writing, we fabricate photoresist templates for 3D–2D–3D photonic crystal heterostructures for what we believe to be the first time. The optical properties of these structures are directly compared with the theoretical ideal, revealing good agreement and hence good sample quality. This provides an experimental starting point for the microfabrication and testing of broadband, 3D air–waveguide microcircuitry in photonic bandgap materials.
