  • Large PCX Condenser Lenses
Aug 2007
Anchor OpticsRequest Info
BARRINGTON, N.J., Aug. 27, 2007 -- Anchor Optics said its commercial grade, large planoconvex (PCX) condenser lenses are ideal for collecting and directing light from large angular area sources in illumination applications, because a larger lens equals a greater area with which to collect light.

AOCondenser-Lenses.jpgAvailable in sizes from 100 mm to 200 mm in diameter, these lenses can be used in large-format projectors, spotlights and enlargers. By using two condenser lenses of the same focal length, you can produce a system with half the focal length of a single lens, which provides a lower f/#, increasing the light gathering capacity of the system, according to Anchor Optics, a division of Edmund Optics.

Anchor Optics' commercial-grade large PCX condenser lenses are made of polished BK7 glass, which provide increased surface quality over standard cast-molded condenser lenses, the company said.

A noncrystalline, inorganic mixture of various metallic oxides fused by heating with glassifiers such as silica, or boric or phosphoric oxides. Common window or bottle glass is a mixture of soda, lime and sand, melted and cast, rolled or blown to shape. Most glasses are transparent in the visible spectrum and up to about 2.5 µm in the infrared, but some are opaque such as natural obsidian; these are, nevertheless, useful as mirror blanks. Traces of some elements such as cobalt, copper and...
The general term for the application of light to a subject. It should not be used in place of the specific quantity illuminance.
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.
Electromagnetic radiation detectable by the eye, ranging in wavelength from about 400 to 750 nm. In photonic applications light can be considered to cover the nonvisible portion of the spectrum which includes the ultraviolet and the infrared.
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...
