Objective Lenses handle head-on and tilted angles of incidence.
May 28, 2008 -
With transmitted wavefront distortion of ¼-wave, peak-to-valley, TECHSPEC® High Performance ReflX(TM) Objectives feature numerical aperture of 0.28, working distance of more than 23 mm, and focal length of more than 13 mm. Tapered mechanical design allows use at angles of incidence up to 45°, while curved spider leg mounts eliminate diffraction effects in image plane that can occur with straight legs. Choice of coatings allow lenses to cover wavelength ranges from deep UV to 11 mm into IR.

Edmund Optics® Upgrades Objective Lenses
May 19, 2008, Barrington, NJ. Edmund Optics® introduces six microscope objective lenses that offer superior performance for imaging or focusing and can handle head-on or tilted angles of incidence. The TECHSPEC® High Performance ReflX(TM) Objectives build on the standard ReflX(TM) design with added features that optimize performance.
Like the standard ReflX(TM) objectives, the lenses offer a long working distance and high numerical aperture (NA), wide spectral band without chromatic aberration, and both infinite-conjugate, and finite-conjugate designs for focusing or imaging applications.
The TECHSPEC® High Performance HP-ReflX(TM) Objectives provide low transmitted wavefront distortion of only one-quarter wave, peak-to-valley. The tapered mechanical design enables their use at angles of incidence up to 45°. The lenses also use curved spider leg mounts to eliminate diffraction effects in the image plane that can occur with straight legs.
The lenses offer an NA of 0.28, working distance of more than 23 mm, and a focal length of more than 13mm. Three choices of coatings allow the lenses to cover wavelength ranges from the deep UV to 11 mm into the IR. Each objective is manufactured in the US and comes with a certificate of compliance.
