Paper Abstract

We present a novel method for making 2D photonic crystal structures. The method relies on different dissolution rates of various organic materials in the developer. Thus, placing a layer of high dissolution rate material under a layer of low dissolution rate material yields a membrane released from the substrate where the photonic crystal has been patterned. This allows for creation of the entire structure in a single chemical development step. We present structures fabricated with this method.
