Optical Replication

Optical Replication

Precision, custom replicated optics are optical components produced by transferring the optical surface of a master (or mold) to one or more copies of the surface. The copies, which approximate the final surface before replication, then take on the precise optical characteristics of the master surface. Optical surface replication produces highly affordable, high-volume critical surface replication that achieves high surface figure accuracy, nanometer range surface feature duplication, and low RMS surface roughness.
