A means of accurate control of the curvature radius of molds that are used in nanostructure replication techniques is presented. The local non-uniform growth of SiO2 at regions with high curvature is used to fabricate molds with a curvature radius ranging anywhere between 10 and 250 nm. The mold radius is predicted by numerical simulation as a function of oxidation tempera- ture and time and con
