BLUE COLLIMATING LENS
Dec 2004LightPath Technologies Inc.Request Info
LightPath Technologies Inc. has introduced a glass-molded aspheric collimating lens for use with its Nichia or with similarly designed blue-diode lasers. The PN 350671 is optimized for specific beam divergence, peak wavelength and window material, enabling blue laser applications to achieve required beam quality. The lens has a large clear aperture and was designed to be better than 0.40 rms at 408 nm and diffraction-limited from 405 to 412 nm. The company limited the spherical, coma and astigmatism aberrations to ensure better performance.
