To promote the feasibility of using photonic crystals to enhance light extraction of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for industrial applications, the request for the high-yield and simple exposure process to pattern two-dimensional photonic crystals (2DPCs) becomes rather urgent. In this work, we developed a one-shot three-beam laser interference system to fabricate a 2DPC on an InGaN-based green LED to address its performance for backlight display applications. Using the current exposure system we develop here, a submicro-patterned area of 6 mm in diameter can be achieved. The experimental results show that the operating voltage of a 1 times 1 mm2 in-area LED incorporated with the 2DPC is around 4 V, and the light extraction efficiency is enhanced by a factor of 2.1.
