Axicons by STANDA.
Plano-convex axicons are conical lenses which are used for variety of applications. When followed by a basic spherical lens, axicons can focus laser light to a ring shape with annular focus.This feature can be used in hole drilling, microscopy and medical
applications. Another interesting feature of axicons is a possibility to transform Gaussian beam into non-diffractive Bessel beam in the near field. Bessel beams can be used in atom or molecule guiding applications.
- Material: BK7, FS, UVFS
- Axicon Type: Plano-Convex
- Diameter: 25.4 mm
- Apex Angle (alpha): 90 deg
Standa offers two types of plano-convex axicons: regular and precision type. Regular axicons will create annularly shaped beam whereas precision axicons will also transform Gaussian beam into a Bessel beam. You can choose accordingly, depending to your specific application.
