Large Diameter Aspheric Lens

High Throughput Aspheric Lenses

Optical Surfaces Ltd. is a leading manufacturer of high quality aspheric lenses for a wide array of demanding optical applications that involve beam focusing, collimation, expansion or wavefront correction. Aspheric lenses provide a cost effective way of reducing the number of optical elements in a system. A correctly formed aspheric lens surface may cancel or control spherical aberration. As a result more energy can be concentrated into a smaller area. Aspheric ...

Variable Focus Motorised Beam Expanders

Optical Surfaces Ltd. is a leading supplier of variable focus motorised beam expanders for LIDAR systems used in meteorological applications. An off-axis reflective beam expander greatly reduces the blind zone of LIDAR systems and therefore often offers the best solution to this problem. In LIDAR systems, such as Doppler Wind LIDAR, the wavefront performance of the beam expander is very important for the LIDAR efficiency. Variable focus motorised beam expanders from Optical ...
