Cylindrical lens’ are available in positive or negative focal lengths. They have one cylindrical surface that causes incoming light to be focused on only a single dimension, which causes the image to be stretched. It can be used to expand the output of a laser diode into a symmetrical beam. Ideal for laser line generation or anamorphic beam shaping to circularize laser outputs.
Our lenses have been fabricated with different types of materials, namely BK7.
