A method for transferring a dielectric mirror prepared on an optical flat replication substrate to a utilization device having a nonflat surface. In order to separate the replication substrate from the mirror after the mirror has been cemented to the device at room temperature and the cement allowed to cure over an extended time period, the composite assembly is inserted into a fixture which provides a buckling force to the center of the replication substrate to cause the replication substrate to be peeled from the mirror.
