Optical EngineeringFrequency analysis of maskless lithography system for generation of continuous phase patterns with homogeneous structure depth

A new approach for the fabrication of continuous-relief diffractive phase patterns is presented. The approach is based on a maskless lithography system with reflective liquid crystal displays that is able to expose continuous and binary reliefs in photoresist with a resolution of 3.4 μm. Due to a spatial frequency analysis of the entire exposure system, a compensation transformation may be applied to the input data, which results in constant structure depths independent of spatial frequencies.
