CMP research featured in Nanowerk

Monday March 28 2011

A recent paper by Centre for Micro-Photonics researchers on the use of ion beam lithography for the creation of 3D photonic crystals has been featured in Nanowerk, a leading resource for nanotechnology and nanoscience information.

The paper, entitled "Sculpturing of photonic crystals by ion beam lithography: towards complete photonic bandgap at visible wavelengths" and published in Optics Express details the use of ion beam lithography to sculpt three-dimensional photonic crystals in crystalline titania, that once optimised, could be used to produce a full photonic bandgap in the visible spectral range.

The work was led by Saulius Juodkazis, Professor of Nanophotonics at CMP, and was performed in collaboration with Professor Sajeev John from the University of Toronto, as well as ion beam lithography experts from Raith Gmbh.
