As the name suggests cylindrical lenses have surfaces which are sections of a cylinder rather than the sphere normally used. Cylindrical lenses are often used to change the profile of laser beams, for example to correct for astigmatism and ellipticity in diode lasers or to generate lines form single mode lasers. These are good quality cylindrical lenses.

Positive cylindrical lenses are ideal for applications requiring magnification in one dimension. A typical application is to use a pair of cylindrical lenses to provide anamorphic shaping of a beam. A pair of positive cylindrical lenses can be used to circularize and collimate the output of a laser diode. Another application possibility would be to use a single lens to focus a diverging beam onto a linear detector array.

This is the general standards we offer our customers, UNION OPTICS can supply other lenses meet your requirements, for detail information, please contact us.
