Frequently Asked Questions

Achromatic doublet lenses consist of two optical components cemented together to form an achromatic doublet which is computer optimized to correct for on-axis spherical and chromatic aberrations.

NIR achromatic doublets and edge blackened achromatic doublets are also available.

Our achromatic doublets are available with a single layer MgF2 coating or a broadband multi-layer coating for the visible spectrum. The single layer MgF2 coating is designed for 0° angle of incidence and less than 1.75% reflectance per surface at 400 - 700nm.

The focal length tolerance of the MgF2 coated achromatic lenses is ±2%.

The two elements composing an achromatic doublet lens are paired together for their ability to correct the color separation inherent in glass. Having eliminated the problematic chromatic aberrations, achromatic doublet lenses become the most cost-efficient means for good polychromatic illumination and imaging.
