LightPath, Huanic Ink 2nd Contract

Photonics.com
Aug 2009
Optical products maker LightPath Technologies Inc. of Orlando, Fla., said it has signed a contract with laser tool manufacturer Huanic Corp. to provide aspheric lenses for Huanic’s laser modules. LightPath will provide short-focal-length aspheric lenses for a new project with applications in laser instruments. This is the second contract to provide such lenses that LightPath and Huanic have signed. “LightPath was able to provide a single-lens solution in high volume that provided a cost and labor savings over traditional spherical doublet and triplet lenses without sacrificing performance,” said Lightpath CEO Jim Gaynor. “Huanic is able to highlight the quality of the optical lens design as a competitive advantage for its products.”


GLOSSARY
aspheric
Not spherical; an optical element having one or more surfaces that are not spherical. The spherical surface of a lens may be slightly altered so as to reduce spherical aberration. Aspheric surfaces are frequently, but not necessarily, surfaces of revolution about the lens axis.
doublet
1. A compound lens consisting of two elements. If there is an air space between the elements it is called an "air-spaced doublet.'' If the inner surfaces are cemented together, it is called a "cemented doublet.'' 2. Two spectral lines produced by a transition between a common state and two states differing only in total angular momentum.
lens
A transparent optical component consisting of one or more pieces of optical glass with surfaces so curved (usually spherical) that they serve to converge or diverge the transmitted rays from an object, thus forming a real or virtual image of that object.
optical
Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
triplet
A lens assembly made up of three lens elements that may or may not be cemented.
