It is important to control the processing conditions to maximize the replication quality of UV-molded microstructure. In the present study, the tip radius anil surface roughness of V-groove structure were measured to quantify the replication quality. UV-curing dose and the applied pressure were experimentally selected as the governing Processing conditions that affect the replication quality of the UV-molded part. Finally. an experimental optimization technique combining central composite design and desirability function approach was used to maximize the replication quality of UV-molded structure.
