TECHSPEC® Plastic Hybrid Acylinder Lenses Create Line Profiles with Broadband Sources
Diffraction-limited focusing performance in only one dimension
Barrington, N.J -- Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces TECHSPEC Plastic Hybrid Acylinder Lenses. Similar to both aspheric lenses and cylinder lenses, these versatile lenses provide diffraction-limited focusing performance in only one dimension. Designed at 587.6 nm, the lenses are excellent for visible wavelengths.
TECHSPEC Plastic Hybrid Acylinder Lenses reduce spherical aberration along the focusing axis. This is ideal for creating precise thin line profiles with broadband sources. The innovative hybrid lens design offers negative optical dispersion and excellent color correction. TECHSPEC Plastic Hybrid Acylinder Lenses feature a high numerical aperture (NA), which allows the lenses to be used with divergent light sources such as laser diode bars and LEDs.
Available in five focal lengths
TECHSPEC Plastic Hybrid Acylinder Lenses are available with a 25 mm diameter, in five focal lengths of 20 mm, 25 mm, 30 mm, 40 mm and 50 mm for ease of integration into a wide variety of applications. All of these lenses are offered either uncoated or with a VIS coating. Unique to Edmund Optics, TECHSPEC Plastic Hybrid Acylinder Lenses are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.
