Ultraviolet photodeposition is a technique for direct laser writing of submicrometer metal patterns on solid substrates. The process involves a wealth of unexplored physical phenomena including micrometer-scale ultraviolet photochemistry and surface and interface chemical dynamics. This paper briefly reviews the current developments in understanding the process physics. In addition, the applications of the technique to microelectronics fabrication are briefly discussed.
