Edmund Optics® Named A Laser Focus World Top Photonics Technology Pick for Achromatic Singlet Lens

1/27/2022, Barrington, NJ USA   —

Edmund Optics®, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of optical components, is pleased to announce that its TECHSPEC® Achromatic Singlet Lenses were named one of Laser Focus World’s top photonics technology picks of 2021.

TECHSPEC® Achromatic Singlet Lenses correct for chromatic focal shift by making use of a unique lens geometry rather than two distinct materials. These achromats are manufactured from Zeonex E48R substrates and feature diamond-turned aspheric profiles. These singlet lenses outperform traditional achromatic doublets by a factor of three and plano-convex (PCX) singlets by a factor of nearly 40, in terms of chromatic focal shift, making them ideal for broadband focusing applications as well as ultraviolet (UV) applications where optical cement is undesired.
