    • n photolithography The art of fixing on the surface of a lithographic stone by the agency of the action of light upon bichromated gelatin combined with albumen, and by other manipulations, an image suitable for reproduction in ink by impression in the manner of an ordinary lithograph; also extended to include processes of similar character in which the transfer is not made to stone; specifically, the process of reproducing in ink any design or picture executed on prepared stone by means of photography, either directly or by transfers from photographs. The process is analogous to several photo-engraving processes executed on metal. See photolithographic process, under photolithographic. Also called lithophotography.

Such a bulk MICROMEGAS is made by lamination of photoresistive film layers on the readout Pr inted Circuit Board (PCB), strongly encapsulating a stretched micro-woven mesh at a fixed distan ce from the PCB, and forming spacer pillars after photolithography .

The multi-photon nature of the process naturally delimits the optical microstructure to the immediate vicinity of the focal beam waist, and low-loss waveguides with similar properties to those obtained by drawing doped glasses or by photolithography have been demonstrated.
