Double-Convex Lenses, also known as DCX or Biconvex lenses, are used in image relay applications, or for imaging objects at close conjugates. Double-Convex Lenses have positive focal lengths, along with two convex surfaces with equal radii. Aberrations will increase as the conjugate ratios increase. DCX Lenses are used in a range of industries or applications.
Edmund Optics offers a wide variety of Double-Convex Lenses in a range of substrates or anti-reflection coatings for maximum performance in the Ultraviolet (UV), Visible, or Infrared (IR). Anti-reflection coatings include UV-AR, UV-VIS, MgF2, VIS 0°, VIS-NIR, NIR I, or NIR II. UV Fused Silica or Calcium Fluoride (CaF2) substrates are also available for additional performance in the Ultraviolet (UV) or Infrared (IR) spectrums. UF Fused Silica Double-Convex Lenses are ideal for close conjugate imaging systems utilizing Ultraviolet (UV) illumination. Calcium Fluoride (CaF2) offers a very wide transmission range of 350nm - 7μm. Edmund Optics’ Double-Convex Lenses are available in a wide range of diameters or focal lengths.
