Spherical lenses

Spherical lenses are the most common manufactured lenses in our facility. We can offer all types of spherical lenses: BCX, meniscus, etc.

Biconvex (BCX) lenses are used for focusing and collimation while offering shorter focal lengths than plano-convex lenses. Biconvex lenses can be used independently as magnifiers and objectives. Due to limited possibilities of manipulation, they don’t offer much flexibility in terms of correcting aberrations, so the images given by them are not perfect. However, it is possible to minimize the spherical aberrations with an optimal ratio of curvatures’ radii.

Biconcave (BCC) lenses are used for beam expansion and light projection while offering shorter focal lengths than plano-concave lenses. Biconcave lenses can be used independently as viewers and optical character readers. Due to limited possibilities of manipulation, they don’t offer much flexibility in terms of correcting aberrations, so the images given by them are not perfect. However, it is possible to minimize the spherical aberrations with an optimal ratio of curvatures’ radii.

Plano-convex (PCX) lenses are the most basic optical element used for focusing and collimation. Due to limited possibilities of manipulation, they don’t offer much flexibility in terms of correcting aberrations, so the images given by them are not perfect.

Plano-concave (PCC) lenses are the most basic optical element used for beam expansion and light projection. Due to limited possibilities of manipulation, they don’t offer much flexibility in terms of correcting aberrations, so the images given by them are not perfect.

Meniscus (CX-CC) lenses can be found most often in complex optical systems, where their function is to minimize aberrations and/or change the focal length of the system. Lenses of this shape are also a typical solution for corrective lenses worn in front of the eye and used to improve vision.
