From this Article:
Simple focusing and collimating of laser light can often be accomplished by using a single lens element. However the focused spot size, energy intensity and image quality are all dependent on, not... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Some focusing applications may require a higher degree of aberration correction than can be achieved in single lenses such as Bestforms. Whether correction over larger apertures, several wavelengths... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Perfect Gaussian Laser beams are often characterized by a parameter known as beam divergence. Divergence is the angular spreading of light waves as they propagate through space. Even a perfect... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Off axis deflection through a focusing lens system will, in general form aberrated images in a curved plane as opposed to a more desirable flat surface. A flat field scanning lens is a specialized... (View Full Article)
