Two-photon-induced photopolymerization is useful for fabricating 3D micro/nano-structures with the resolution of the sub-diffraction limit. By using this method, photonic crystal was created with pre-compensation of shrinkage of photopolymer. On the contrary, the shrinkage was utilized to reduce the structure size. A micro-lens array was used to produce a mass of structures in parallel. Furthermore, metallization of the 3D polymer templates was conducted by electroless metal plating. These fabrication techniques are applicable to functional micro/nano devices.
