Optical lenses have a wide range of applications, from simple laser beam collection to precise imaging and image transfer. They can be classified into spherical lenses, cylindrical lenses, and achromatic lenses, which are typically made of materials such as BK7, fused silica, and CaF2. Our engineers can design special focusing systems upon request.
Cylindrical lenses are widely used in bar code scanning, projection optics systems, laser measurement systems and holography.
Spherical lenses—also sometimes referred to as singlets—are optical lenses that feature a spherical surface with a radius of curvature that is consistent across the entire lens. They are constructed such that the light entering them diverges or converges, depending on the lens design.
An achromatic lens is a compound lens system that forms an image free from chromatic aberration.
