Computational Design of Interference Lithography for the Fabrication of Three-Dimensional Microstructures (2009)The fabrication of three-dimensional periodic (3D) micro- and nano-structures has become increasingly important to various fields in science and technology. This has been especially true for the field of photonic crystals ...
(2013-02-03)Proximity field Nano-Patterning (PnP) is a large-area interference lithography technique that is used to fabricate multi-dimensionally periodic micro-structures. Though a potent technique for 3D microfabrication that offers ...
(2010-05-19)Photonic crystals can affect the behavior of visible light, and other electromagnetic waves, in ways that are not possible by other means. The propagation of photons can be completely forbidden or the the light can be ...
Fabrication of Novel Three-Dimensional Photonic Crystals Using Multi-Beam Interference Lithography (2009)Genetic algorithms are demonstrated as a technique to design an interference lithography experiment. A four-beam setup with beams originating in opposite hemispheres and linear polarizations is found to generate a structure ...
Functional Microperiodic Polyacrylamide Gels Fabricated by Opal Inversion and Direct-Write Processes (2008)Functional three-dimensional microperiodic polyacrylamide hydrogel structures were created and characterized. Submicron to 50 micron periodicities were explored across the structures, the lower end for optical and filtration ...
(2010-06-29)Spherical colloidal nanoparticles have been popular building blocks for larger scale super structures due to their easy synthesis, unique while simple shape and relatively well understood interactions. Despite concentrated ...
(2010-01-06)This thesis studies methods of engineering the placement of nanoparticle with sub-micron resolution over macroscopic size scales. Such control holds great promise as an inexpensive methodology for manufacturing devices, ...
(2010-05-14)This dissertation describes the optical techniques for fabricating three-dimensional (3D) nanostructures with diverse structural layouts. The approach, which we refer to as proximity field nanopatterning (PnP), uses ...
