Fresnel Lens Review

Fresnel lenses are composed of a series of concentric grooves etched into one side of a sheet of plastic. Fresnel lenses are unlike typical spherical or aspherical optical lenses. The grooves of Fresnel Lenses act as individual refracting surfaces, making these lenses ideal for solar concentration, solar cell heat collection, overhead projection, and non-imaging light focusing applications. Monica Rainey, Optical Engineer, explains the advantages, disadvantages, and applications of these unique lenses. To learn more, read our Advantages of Fresnel Lenses application note.

Variety of lenses designed for visible or IR applications. Aspherically contoured, conical groove PCV, cylinder, and lenticular array versions available.

Fresnel lenses are useful in a variety of applications, including light gathering applications, such as condenser systems or emitter/detector setups.
