ABSTRACT
The authors reported the use of recessive size reduction in self-assembled polystyrene sphere mask with anisotropic etching to form lenslike nipple arrays onto the surface of silicon and gallium nitride. These devices are shown to exhibit a filling factor near to an ideal close-packed condition and paraboloidlike etch profile with slope increased proportionally to the device aspect ratio. Specular reflectivity of less than 3% was observed over the visible spectral range for the 0.35-μm-period nipple-lens arrays. Using two-dimensional rigorous coupled-wave analysis, the latter phenomenon can be ascribed to a gradual index matching mechanism accessed by a high surface-coverage semiconductor nipple array structure.
