II-VI INFRARED Datasheets for Optical Lenses

Optical lenses are transparent components made from optical-quality materials and curved to converge or diverge transmitted rays from an object. These rays then form a real or virtual image of the object.  This area includes micro lenses.

Product Name Notes
Aspheric Lenses Aspheric lenses are designed to be diffraction limited. They usually achieve a smaller spot size than both the plano-convex and positive meniscus lens. This provides the highest power density at...
Meniscus Lenses Meniscus lenses are designed to minimize spherical aberration producing a minimum focal spot size for incoming collimated light. In addition to the standard focal lengths listed below, II-VI maintains an...
Cylinder Lenses As the name suggests, cylindrical lenses are either round or rectangular objects with cylindrically shaped surfaces. They differ from spherical lenses in that they focus a beam to a focal...
Biconinc Lenses Biconic lenses have two different radii on one surface. It is possible to make a biconic lens with spherical curves or aspheric curves, depending on the application and need to...
Plano-Convex Lenses Plano-convex lenses, the most economical transmissive focusing elements available, are ideally suited for laser heat treating, welding, cutting, and infrared radiation collection where spot size or image quality is not...
Vortex Lens The vortex lens is unique because it has spiral-phase steps machined into the curved surface. This spiral pattern controls the phase of the transmitted beam. When the spiral steps are...
