Direct Laser Interference Writing of Silver Gratings
A novel maskless method of creating Ag gratings, down to a pitch as low as 220 nm, is presented in the paper. This is based on the direct laser interference of two HeCd laser beams ( = 325 nm) in a solution of sodium citrate and silver nitrate, where photochemically reduced silver gratings of different pitch lengths can be directly written on various substrates such as polystyrene, BK7 glass, Si wafer, etc. This paper discusses the underlying principle and demonstrates the silver gratings of different scales achievable.
