Edge effects on plasmonic nanolithography

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Edge effects were investigated on the quality of resist patterns based on finite difference time domain (FDTD) calculations. The interference of the surface plasmon leads to nanoscale spatial distribution of light intensity, which reradiate into the photoresist. The edge effects can be removed by adding a layer of refractive-index-matched materials on the exit side of the mask. It was found that, depending on the thickness of the protection layer, the width of the resist pattern can be controlled.
