The fabrication of 3D photonic crystal (PC) lattices with designed linear defects by electron beam lithography and multitilt x-ray exposures was analyzed. Different lithographies were used in order to control the design and the realization of the linear defects inside the three-dimensional structure. Nickel Yablonovite lattices with a lattice parameter of 1.8 μm and a total thickness of 15 μm were fabricated using the method. The optical reflectance measurements shows that the lattices possessed characteristic resonances as required for 3D PCs.
