Paper Abstract

Herein we present the implementation of autofocusing in multi-photon Direct Laser Writing (DLW) lithography. It is based on fluorescence occurring within the confined volume of a photopolymer/photoresin excitation resulting to a voxel generation. The proposed method is further successfully employed for the nanofabrication of large scale (500 nm in height, up to 25 mm2 in area) Diffractive Optical Elements (DOE). The produced structures are characterized using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and confocal optical profilometry. The introduced technique is potential for a simple, price and effort efficient upgrade of currently existing DLW micro-/nano-lithography setups.
