Paper Abstract

Replication of optical surfaces became a commercial process around 1950 and quickly became the key to routine production of Diffraction Gratings. The procedures also lend themselves quite well to making all sorts of special mirrors and aspheric refracting elements, but it took nearly 20 years more for this to find acceptance in the optical industry. The possibilities are of increasing interest, although natural limitations must be respected.
