EKSMA OPTICS Datasheets for Cylindrical Lenses

Cylindrical lens have at least one surface that is formed in the shape of a cylinder. Cylindrical lenses are used to correct astigmatism in the eye, and, in rangefinders, to produce astigmatism, stretching a point of light into a line.  This area includes micro cylindrical lenses as well.

Product Name Notes
Barium Fluoride (BaF2) Lenses Barium fluoride (BaF2) is used for optical windows, prisms and lenses transmitting from ultraviolet into infrared, it can be used as infrared laser window or lens. BaF2...
BK7 Biconvex Lenses
UV FS Biconvex Lenses
Biconvex lenses are all symmetrical, having equal radii on both sides. They are recommended for virtual imaging of real objects, and for positive conjugate ratios from 0.2 up to 5.
Conical Lenses (Axicons) Plano-convex axicons have one conical and one plano surface. Axicons can be defined by their apex angle. Conical lenses are used to transform the light into a ring or to...
Biconcave Lenses These lenses are symmetrical with equal radii on both sides. The biconcave lenses are often used to expand light beams or to increase focal lengths in optical systems, and are...
Plano-Concave Lenses These lenses are thicker at the edge than in the centre and flat on one side. The plano-concave lenses are used to expand light beams or to increase focal lengths...
Plano-Concave Cylindrical Lenses These lenses are used in laser scanners, spectroscopy, dye lasers, acousto-optics, optical processors and other similar applications. They are the best for circularization of diode laser outputs. Earlier remarks made...
Plano-Convex Cylindrical Lenses These lenses are used to focus light to a thin line in laser scanners, spectroscopy, dye lasers, acousto-optics, optical processors and other similar applications. They are the best for circularization...
BK7 Plano-Convex Lenses
CaF2 Plano-Convex Lenses
UV FS Plano-Convex Lenses
These simplest form lenses have flat surface on one side and spherical surface on the other. They are widely used in telescopes, microscopes, collimators, optical transceivers, magnifiers, condenser systems and...
Zinc Selenide (ZnSe) Lenses Zinc selenide (ZnSe) is the most popular material for infrared applications. Due to a very wide transmission range covering 0.6-22 µm chemical vapor deposition grown ZnSe as a high optical...
