Knight Optical's Sapphire Cylindrical Lenses for Endoscopes

Knight Optical (USA) LLC

Cylindrical lenses are designed to focus light into a straight line, rather than to a single point. The lens surface has a cylindrical shape rather than the usual spherical which allows for one dimensional shaping of light along a line. Cylindrical lenses are often used to change the profile of laser beams, for example to correct for astigmatism & ellipticity in diode lasers or to generate lines from single mode lasers. Typical specs: Material: Sapphire Diameter Tolerance: +0/-0.25mm Centration: 0.25mm (F.L < 50mm) 5mrad (F.L > 50mm) Focal Length (@587mm): ± 2.0% Surface Quality: <60-40 Scratch/Dig Coatings: Coatings available
