Paper Abstract

We formulate an image-forming optical theory of quantum lithography in which Entangled-photon pairs generated by spontaneous parametric down-conversion play an important role. Our optical system consists of an image-forming system, an illumination system with a second-order nonlinear medium, and two-photon absorbing materials. We evaluate the resolution of the quantum lithography system by using the optical transfer function and show a super-resolving condition which is, however, difficult to achieve.
