Reports Outline Nanolithography Findings from Korea University (One-Step Combined-Nanolithography-and-Photolithography for a 2D Photonic Crystal TM Polarizer)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- Research findings on Nanolithography are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting out of Seoul, South Korea, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "Photonic crystals have been widely investigated since they have great potential to manipulate the flow of light in an ultra-compact-scale and enable numerous innovative applications. 2D slab photonic crystals for the telecommunication C band at around 1550 nm have multi-scale structures that are typically micron-scale waveguides and deep sub-micron-scale air hole arrays."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Korea University, "Several steps of nanolithography and photolithography are usually used for the fabrication of multi-scale photonic crystals. In this work, we report a one-step lithography process to pattern both micron and deep sub-micron features simultaneously for the 2D slab photonic crystal using combined-nanoimprint-andphotolithography."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "As a demonstrator, a 2D silicon photonic crystal transverse magnetic polarizer was fabricated, and the operation was successfully demonstrated."
