Paper Abstract

The fundamental relations of the ultraviolet (UV) light transmittance of the soft polymer film filled by a large number of basic micro-pattern-structures composed of micro-squares, are acquired experimentally. The polymer films with different distribution density of basic color-micro-pattern-structure in the visible range, are also constructed easily, so as to perform single photomask photolithography for fabrication microlenses with very fine surface profile. The patterned polymer films demonstrate a modulated UV-light penetrating property. Models for describing the penetrating behaviors of UV-light over polymer films covered by a large number of basic grayscale or colorscale micro-patternstructures constructed, for instance, typical micro-square and other micro-pattern-structures shaped by partially overlapping several micro-squares, are set up. Several key factors, which influence the penetrating behavior of UV-light, and then the surface character, and also the quality of correspondent functioned micro-structures in photoresist and further substrate, such as diffractive or refractive microlens, are discussed carefully. The UV-light transmitting measurements demonstrate a desired UV-light intensity variance trend, which is basically consistent with theoretical prediction.
