Abstract

The continuously shrinking of the photonic structures has stimulated the research and development of low-dimensionality photoluminescent patterns based on visible-emitting color centers (CCs) in thin films. In particular. Lithium Fluoride (LiF) treated with ionizing radiation by using versatile lithographic techniques, represents a very promising candidate for the realization of innovative photonic devices. Permanent fluorescent patterns based on CCs have been realized in LiF films by direct writing with a X-ray microprobe -of the ESCA Microscopy beamline at ELETTRA synchrotron in different configuration. Luminescent nanostructures, written by scanning the LiF specimen with respect to the X-ray beam, have been investigated by near-field optical microscope and a sub-wavelength spatial resolution is demonstrated.
