YAG-BBAR Coated Plano-Concave (PCV) Lenses

  • Negative Focal Lengths for Beam Expansion or Light Projection Applications
  • Optimized for R<0.25% at both 532nm and 1064nm
  • AR Coated to Provide <1.0% Reflectance per Surface for 500 - 1100nm
  • Various Coating Options: Uncoated, VIS-EXTMgF2, VIS 0°, VIS-NIR, NIR I, NIR II, and 1064nm V-Coat

TECHSPEC® YAG-BBAR Coated Plano-Concave (PCV) Lenses are designed to bend parallel input rays to diverge from one another on the output side of the lens causing this lens to have a negative focal length. These lenses can be used for balancing aberrations created by other lenses within a system due to their negative spherical aberration. Plano-Concave (PCV) lenses are commonly used in a variety of applications including image reduction, beam expansion and telescopes. TECHSPEC® YAG-BBAR Coated Plano-Concave (PCV) Lenses feature less than 0.25% reflection at common Nd:YAG laser wavelengths of 532nm and 1064nm. These lenses are also available Uncoated, VIS-EXTMgF2VIS 0°VIS-NIRNIR I, or with NIR II AR coating options.
