◢Plano-Convex Lenses

As the most common lens element, a plano-convex lens is spherical lenses with a flat surface and a convex surface that focuses and collimates light. More specifically, both surfaces of fused silica plano-convex lens work together by focusing parallel rays to a positive focus. In this way, the plano convex lens constitutes a real image that can be easily manipulated by using spatial filters.

The curve surface of a plano-convex lens has a focusing effect on light, while the plane has no focusing or defocusing effect. The asymmetry of plano-convex lenses can reduce spherical aberrations in applications where the distance between the image and the object and the lens is not equal. Generally, a parallel light beam (or a distant light source) is incident from a convex surface to minimize the occurrence of spherical aberration, and the light beam emitted from the plane side is collected. Plano-convex lenses are used to apply focus to the optical system and collimate the divergent light beam. When the curve part of the lens faces the object, the maximum clear focus can be achieved. Plano-convex lenses have both a positive focal length and a direction that play a key role in determining image quality.

For systems with less stringent image quality requirements, fused silica plano-convex lenses from CLZ Optical Co., Ltd. can be used as simple imaging lenses. For higher quality images, we recommend using an achromatic lens. Plano convex lenses are ideal for focusing applications with light collimation or monochromatic illumination, such as telescopes, microscopes, collimators, optical transceivers, magnifiers, condenser systems, and eyepieces. And suitable for industrial, pharmaceutical, robotics or defense and other collimation or monochrome processing applications.
