    Abstract

    We present a scheme which combines focusing of atomic de Broglie waves by standing light waves and fractional Talbot imaging to produce nanostructures. Masking of the incoming atomic wave by an absorptive grating is used to eliminate atom-optical aberrations that would otherwise wash out the fractional Talbot images. The scheme allows the creation of structures of very small feature size as well as small period.
