λ/8 Cylindrical Lenses

Cemented Cylindrical Lens
from BRD Optical Co., Ltd.

Achromatic Lenses are used to minimize or eliminate chromatic aberration. The achromatic design also helps minimize spherical aberrations. Achromatic Lenses are ideal for a range of applications, including fluorescence microscopy, image relay, inspection, or spectroscopy. An Achromatic Lens, which... [See More]

  • Surface Flatness: λ/2; λ/4; λ/5; λ/8
  • Center Thickness: 5 to 50
  • Lens Application: Visible

Cylinder Lens / Optical Lenses
from BRD Optical Co., Ltd.

Cylinder Lenses are typically used to focus incoming light to a line, or to change the aspect ratio of an image. Cylindrical Lenses have a single cylindrical surface that causes incoming light to be focused in only a single dimension, stretching the image. Cylinder Lenses are available with positive...

Meniscus Cylindrical Lens
from BRD Optical Co., Ltd.

Meniscus Cylindrical Lens can increase the NA of the system while only adding slightly to the total spherical aberrations. The Negative Meniscus Lens is used to increase the focal length of another lens while maintaining the angular resolution of the optical assembly. This lens shape is best used... [See More]

Biconcave Lenses
from EKSMA OPTICS

These lenses are symmetrical with equal radii on both sides. The biconcave lenses are often used to expand light beams or to increase focal lengths in optical systems, and are normally used in combination with other lenses. Among the many devices utilising biconcave lenses are laser beam expanders,... [See More]

BK7 Plano-Convex Lenses
from EKSMA OPTICS

These simplest form lenses have flat surface on one side and spherical surface on the other. They are widely used in telescopes, microscopes, collimators, optical transceivers, magnifiers, condenser systems and eyepieces. Plano convex lens made of BK7, UV FS (UV grade Fused Silica), CaF2 (Calcium... [See More]

  • Center Thickness: 2.1 to 12.3
Plano-Concave Lenses
from EKSMA OPTICS

These lenses are thicker at the edge than in the centre and flat on one side. The plano-concave lenses are used to expand light beams or to increase focal lengths in optical systems. They are often employed for beam expansion of high peak power pulsed lasers. A beam incident on a concave surface... [See More]
