Abstract: We report the use of an optical interference holographic setup with a five-beam configuration, consisting of four side beams and one central beam from the same half space, to fabricate woodpile and diamond structures for the use as photonic bandgap materials in which electromagnetic waves are forbidden in the bandgap. By exploiting the advantage of the binarization of the interference pattern, using intensity cut-off, either linear or circular central beam can be used. More importantly, the beam configurations can be easily implemented experimentally as compared to other configurations in which the interfering beams are counter-propagating from both half spaces.
