Techspec UV fused silica PCX cylinder lenses
Edmund Optics, a provider of optical components, has introduced its Techspec UV fused silica PCX cylinder lenses. These versatile lenses are ideal for UV beam shaping and provide excellent UV transmission with a low coefficient of thermal expansion - ideal for applications operating in harsh or rugged environments with large temperature variations.
Cylinder lenses focus light in only one dimension. They are most commonly used with linear sensor arrays or to create a line from a laser source. Techspec UV fused silica PCX cylinder lenses are manufactured in 12.5mm diameter sizes with focal lengths of 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm. The 25mm diameter lenses are available with 50mm, 75mm, 100mm and 150mm focal lengths.
All lenses come uncoated, with a wide variety of custom coatings available upon request.
