Photodeposition is an emerging new thin-film material deposition and optical image patterning technique with photographic recording characteristics. In the past, lasers and incoherent light sources were exploited for photodeposition of various materials in micropatterns. Here we report that photodeposition can also be used for recording holographic relief gratings of 2000 lines/mm and periodically modulated depths of 1 to 20 nm.
