Edmund Optics (EO), a renowned provider of optical components, continuously expands its product offering to reflect market developments and customer needs. New products are added each month to better serve the industry. This release features two recent additions: Near-Infrared (NIR) Precision Aspheric Lenses and TECHSPEC LS Series Line Scan Lenses.

The Near-Infrared (NIR) Precision Aspheric Lenses are designed and optimized to eliminate spherical aberration. These aspheres are polished through a computer numerical controlled (CNC) process for high-precision performance across the NIR spectrum. Near-Infrared (NIR) Precision Aspheric Lenses are either available with low numerical aperture designs in order to maintain beam shape or with high numerical aperture designs for applications that require light-gathering.

Edmund Optics’ TECHSPEC LS Series Line Scan Lenses are designed for 82 mm 16K line scan cameras with 5 μm pixels and 62,5 mm 12k line scan cameras with 5 μm pixels. The lenses are designed with low distortions and are available with features for coaxial inline illumination or for area scan sensors. The iris adjusts from f/2,9 to f/22 and is lockable and the V-mount allows for easy adjustment and alignment. Their uniform, high-resolution performance across the entire image makes these TECHSPEC LS Series Line Scan Lenses ideal for applications such as electronics, flat panel display, and semiconductor wafer inspection.
