Plano-concave rectangular cylindrical lenses provide uni-axial negative imaging for anamorphic beam expansion and a wide range of applications.These lensesmay also be used as 

mirror blanks if a concave cylindrical surface mirror is required.

1、Why is cylindrical lens used?

A cylindrical lens is typically used to focus, condense or expand incoming light. A cylindrical lens has one cylindrical surface, causing light to be focused in a single dimension or axis.


2、Which defect of the eye can be corrected by using a cylindrical lens?

The defect of the eye that can be corrected by using cylindrical lens is Astigmatism. Astigmatism is caused due to uneven curvature of the eye lens.


3、How do concave and convex lenses correct vision?

Concave Lenses Are for the Nearsighted, Convex for the Farsighted. Concave lenses are used in eyeglasses that correct nearsightedness. ... Placing concave lenses in front of a nearsighted eye reduces the refraction of light and lengthens the focal length so that the image is formed on the retina.

1.  Germanium (Ge)

Germanium (Ge) is the preferred lens and window material for high performance infrared imaging systems in the 8–12 μm wavelength band. Its high refractive index makes Ge ideal for low power imaging systems because of minimum surface curvature. Chromatic aberration is small, often eliminating the need for correction.

2. Silicon (Si) 

Silicon (Si) is grown by Czochralski pulling techniques (CZ) and contains some oxygen that causes an absorption band at 9 microns.To avoid this, material can be prepared by a Float-Zone (FZ) process. Optical silicon is generally lightly doped (5 to 40 ohm cm) for best transmission above 10 microns, and doping is usually boron (P-type) and phosphorus (N-type). After doping silicon has a further pass band: 30 to 100 microns which is effective only in very high resistivity uncompensated material.
CZ Silicon is commonly used as substrate material for infrared reflectors and windows in the 1.5-8 micron region. The strong absorption band at 9 microns makes it unsuitable for CO2 laser transmission applications, but it is frequently used for laser mirrors because of its high thermal conductivity and low density. Application as window, lens in the 1.5 - 8 um region; Mirror for CO2 laser and spectrometer applications.

4. ZnSe material

ZnSe is a preferred material for lenses, windows, output couplers and beam expanders for its low absorptivity at infrared wavelengths and its visible transmission. For high-power applications, it’s critical that the material bulk absorption and internal defect structure be carefully controlled, that minimum-damage polishing technology be employed, and the highest quality optical thin-film coatings are used. The material absorption is verified by CO2 laser vacuum calorimetry. Our quality assurance department provides testing and specific optics certification on request.

ZnSe is non-hygroscopic and chemically stable, unless treated with strong acids. It’s safe to use in most industrial field, and laboratory environments.

Polarizing Beamsplitter Cubes(PBS cubes)
Polarizing Beamsplitter Cubes
Polarization Beamsplitter Cubes are constructed by cemented two right angle prisms, the hypotenuse of one prism is coated with polarization dielectric coating.

When used with normal incident, un-polarized light, the incident beam is separated into two polarized beams, p-polarized component is passed straight through, s-polarized component is reflected out at 90deg.
Dispersion Prisms
30° - 60° - 90° Littrow Dispersion Prisms
Dispersion Prisms are used in applications that require separating the incident light into its component wavelengths. For example, when white light enters a Dispersion Prism, it is separated into its three components: red, green, and blue. Dispersion Prisms are ideal for spectroscopy or laser tuning.
Neutral Density Filters
Optical glass neutral density filters

A Neutral Density filter allows a photographer to control the exposure in an image very easily. The filter stops light reaching the camera sensor, therefore allowing us to leave the camera with a higher aperture for a longer amount of time.

Rhomboid Prisms
High Precision Rhomboid Prism
The Rhomboid prism application for rhomboid-prism is controlling and redirecting the optical path without affecting the image direction. They can be used to displace an optical center line for light beam folding and stereoscopic systems of different sizes.
