LED Mounts and Lenses

(85 companies)
LED mounts and lenses are used to mount LEDs and shape or transfer light output. Other components in this area include LED light pipes, headers, interconnects, and assemblies.

Gradient Index Lenses

(8 companies)
Gradient index (GRIN) lenses focus light through a precisely controlled radial variation of the lens material's index of refraction from the optical axis to the edge of the lens.


(1,817 companies)
Lamps are light sources that emit incoherent light for illumination. There are many different types of products. Examples include fluorescent lamps, halogen lamps, heat lamps, incandescent lamps, LED lamps, projection lamps, spectral lamps, and stage lamps. Specialized and proprietary lamps are also available.

Meniscus Lenses

(12 companies)
Meniscus lenses are optical lenses that produce a smaller focal point and fewer aberrations than a standard plano-convex lens. They have one convex and one concave surface with each surface having its own radius or curvature.

Aspheric Lenses

(43 companies)
Aspheric lenses compensate for spherical aberration and are used primarily for their light gathering ability.

Ball Lenses

(21 companies)
Ball lenses are used to provide short focal lengths for use with collimated light and are often used in fiber coupling applications.


(55 companies)
Telescopes are lens assemblies designed to magnify and view distant objects.


(71 companies)
Binoculars are lens assemblies used for magnifying and viewing distant objects stereoscopically.


(700 companies)
Microscopes are instruments that produce magnified images of small objects


(49 companies)
Achromats consist of two or more elements, usually of crown and flint glass, that have been corrected for chromatic aberration with respect to two selected wavelengths. They are also known as achromatic lenses. This area includes micro achromats as well.

Optical Comparators

(115 companies)
Optical comparators are instruments that project a magnified image or profile of a part onto a screen for comparison to a standard overlay profile or scale.
Digital and video microscopes are instruments that use digital technology to magnify images of objects. They include built-in cameras and a series of high-powered lenses that provide superior image quality and resolution.


(4 companies)
Spherometers are used to measure the radius or curvature of spherical surfaces such as optical lenses, spherical mirrors, and balls.

Beam Expanders

(34 companies)
Beam expanders are optical lens assemblies that are used to increase the diameter of a laser beam or other light beam.


(61 companies)
Collimators are optical lens assemblies that take divergent or convergent incoming light rays and produces parallel light output.
