    Cylinder Lenses

    Cylinder Lenses are typically used to focus incoming light to a line, or to change the aspect ratio of an image. Cylindrical Lenses have a single cylindrical surface that causes incoming light to be focused in only a single dimension, stretching the image. Cylinder Lenses are available with positive or negative focal lengths, ideal for laser line generation or anamorphic beam shaping to circularize laser outputs.

    Edmund Optics selection of Cylinder Lenses include achromatic, acylinder, plano-convex, or plano-concave. Achromatic Cylinder Lenses provide additional color correction by minimizing chromatic aberration. Hybrid Acylinder Lenses are ideal for color correction, in addition to minimizing spherical aberration. Edmund Optics offers Cylinder Lenses with glass or plastic substrates, or with circular, rectangular, or oblong dimensions. Multiple anti-reflection coating options are available from the ultraviolet to the infrared, including UV-AR, UV-VIS, MgF2, VIS-NIR, VIS 0°, or NIR I. Edmund Optics offers full prescription data, in addition to 2D or 3D models.
