λ/4 Cylindrical Lenses

Plano Concave Cylindrical Lens
from Dayoptics, Inc.

Cylindrical lenses focus light in only one dimension and are most commonly used to correct astigmatics in the eye, and in rangefinders, to produce astigmatism, stretching a point of light into a line. Recently cylindrical lens has been widely used in semiconductor diode lasers as FAC lenses. [See More]
