Paper Abstract

This paper gives a brief overview of the replication process for optical elements with epoxy resin based on a practical example, the so-called "aspherical end plate". The main viewpoints are the preparation of the master moulds with a siloxane solution and the attempt to explain the influence of the carbon acid during the epoxy cure in the epoxy system "resin-hardener-accelerator".
