Edmund Optics: Beam Shaping PCX Cylinder Lenses
13 October 2017, 13:44 pm – OptoIndex

TECHSPEC® Beam Shaping Plano-Convex (PCX) Cylinder Lenses offer an ideal pairing of tightly controlled tolerances and scalable pricing for volume integration. As opposed to spherical lenses, which focus light in two dimensions, cylinder lenses are used to focus light in one dimension. AR Coating options are available for laser applications, minimizing stray light and maximizing throughput of a system. Our TECHSPEC Beam Shaping PCX Cylinder Lenses are specified to control geometric characteristics in order to ensure consistent performance from design to manufacturing. Typical applications include circularizing elliptical beams from a laser diode, creating a light sheet for measurement systems, or projecting a laser line onto a surface.

Edmund Optics specializes in creating cost effective solutions that meet the customer's specifications and timelines. Edmund Optics' goal is for each of the customers projects to be as successful as possible. Here you can learn more about the new laser optics.
