How to Form an Image with an Optical Lens Setup

Although a common misconception, individual optical lenses do not always form an image when the object plane is placed a focal length away from the lens. Rather, image location is dependent on object location. Join Monica Rainey, Optical Engineer, as she explains focal length and how to form an image with three simple real-world optical lens setups.

From singlet, doublet, or triplet lens designs to achromatic, aspheric, cylinder, ball, or fresnel, we have thousands of choices for the UV, visible, or IR spectrum.

EO will explain how to collimate a divergent light source, and how to use collimated light to determine the focal length of a simple optical lens.

Edmund Optics' engineers are experts in delivering the best solution possible. From stock products to custom designs, EO has the industry and technical knowledge to help meet your needs.
