Discussion on the Radial Superresolution of the Two-Photon Microfabrication


Article Preview

In order to improve the radial superresolution of the two-photon microfabrication, the superresolution diffraction theory was introduced in detail. The theoretical analysis of the photosensitive resist based on the exciting power and concentration of free radical was given.. And the superresolution diffractive optical element was applied in the two-photon microfabrication system. Simulation results indicated that the radial superresolution of the two-photon microfabrication can be improved with the superresolution diffractive optical element.
