Surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) has attracted great attention in the last decade and recently it has been successfully applied to nanolithography due to its ability of beyond diffraction limit. This article reviews the recent development in plasmonic nanolithography, which is considered as one of the most remarkable technology for next-generation nanolithography. Nanolithography experiments were highlighted on the basis of SPPs effect. Three types of plasmonic nanolithography methods: contact nanolithography, planar lens imaging nanolithography, and direct writing nanolithography were reviewed in detail, and their advantages and shortages are analyzed and compared, respectively. Finally, the development trend of plasmonic nanolithography is suggested.
