High Performance Cylinder Lenses
Edmund Optics
Focuses light in only one dimension. Similar to a PCX lens in profile, but is a portion of a cylinder instead of a sphere. Cylinder lenses can transform a point of light into a line image. This is useful for making laser line generators. The lens magnifies in one dimension so it can be used for stretching images. Can be used for ...

Cylindrical lens, also called a cylinder, is an optical lens which focuses light on to a line instead of on to a point, as a spherical lens would. The curved face or faces of a cylindrical lens are sections of a cylinder, and focus the image passing through it onto a line parallel to the intersection of the surface of the lens and a ...

Did You know?

Unlike ordinary lenses, cylindrical lens focusses the light onto a line rather than on point due to the spherical radius being in one direction only. Cylindrical lenses are used in different applications like the correction of astigmatism, bar code scanning or laser projection. They are ideal for circularization of diode laser outputs, energy collection for linear detectors or for coupling to a slit input on monochromators or spectrometers. Another typical application of a is in the light sheet microscope where a cylindrical lens is placed in front of the illumination objective to create the light sheet used for imaging.
