Abstract  Laser focused atomic deposition is a unique and effective way to fabricate highly accurate pitch standards in nanometrology. However, the stability and repeatability of the atom lithography fabrication process remains a challenging problem for massive production. Based on the atom-light interaction theory, channeling is utilized to improve the stability and repeatability. From the comparison of three kinds of atom-light interaction models, the optimal parameters for channeling are obtained based on simulation. According to the experimental observations, the peak to valley height of Cr nano-gratings keeps stable when the cutting proportion changes from 15% to 50%, which means that the channeling shows up under this condition. The channeling proves to be an effective method to optimize the stability and repeatability of laser focused Cr atomic deposition.
