We propose a scheme for large angle two-dimensional atom interferometers employing two-photon pulses. The interferometer scheme utilizes Raman pulses to produce a two-dimensional pattern with independent choice of grating spacings in each direction, each being as small as 2 nm. This scheme may enable one to produce uniform arrays of structures such as quantum dots with dimensions of only a few nm on each side.
