Reactive Ion Etching (RIE)
In order to define photonic structures in a certain layer of material first some areas are protected with a material on top (e.g. polymer or metal) while others remain exposed to the exterior.
UV contact mask lithography
The process flow comprises mainly three steps: the deposition of a thin layer of a photopolymer, the UV illumination through a glass mask with transparent/opaque patterns and the developing.
