This paper demonstrates a phase tunable holographic fabrication of three-dimensional photonic lattice structures using a single optical element. A top-cut four-side prism is employed to generate five-beam three-dimensional interference patterns. A silica glass slide is inserted into the optical path to adjust the phase of one interfering beam relative to other four beams. The phase control of the interfering laser beam renders the lattice of the interference pattern from a face-center tetragonal symmetry into a high contrast, interconnecting diamondlike symmetry. This method provides a flexible approach to fabricating three-dimensional photonic lattices with improved photonic band structures.

    Abstract. Highly resolved micropatterns induced on SiO[sub 2]coated Si sample surfaces have been investigated using a KrF excimer laser (lambda: 248 nm and tau: 23 ns). Uniform micropatterns were observed to form in the oxide layer after laser-induced melting of interfaces. The pattern size can...
