Cylindrical lenses focus incoming light in one dimension only, such as in transforming a point image into a line image or changing the height of an image without changing its width or vice versa. Our cylinder department houses equipment fabricated by and unique to PC Optics, with extensive cylinder test plates and cylinder fabrication tools.
PC Optics Lenses are designed at customer wavelength. And both sides can be coated with a high efficiency narrowband, anti-reflective coating or another coating required by the customer's design.
Square Cylindrical Lenses and Double Sided Aplanats are also available-call PC Optics for a quote.
