Abstract
With respect to the manufacturing of optical elements, facile and effective fabrication method is proposed. It is developed in connection with photo-induced surface relief (PSR)formation phenomenon that occurs on the azobenzene functionalized polymer film. Purely optically inscribed surface relief structures have been used as a plastic mold for manufacturing of its replica. At least a hundred times replication process has been achieved using thermosetting resin without any deterioration. This method has many merits not only from a technical viewpoint but also from a economical efficiency. In this report,first the PSR phenomenon is explained and then several examples for optical component fabrication are demonstrated.
