These are lenses with one flat surface and one convex surface. They have a positive focal length and are used to converge or focus incoming light. They are best for infinite conjugate systems. They can be used in many different optical systems such as magnifiers, telescopes, collimators, condensers and imaging instruments. For best optical performance, the convex side should always face the incident light.
CLZ Precision Optics specialize in manufacturing optical components from customer supplied designs, including a wide variety of Plano Convex Lenses. We can provide Featuring surface accuracy to less than 0.2 fringe measured at 633nm and finishes to 20-10 scratch-dig per MIL-PRF 13830, the material are fabricated from quartz, optical glass, silicon, etc. and the sizes up to 200mm diameter.
