BARRINGTON, N.J., May 27, 2008 -- Edmund Optics Inc. said its new TechSpec ultraviolet (UV) fused-silica rod lenses are highly polished small-diameter rods that provide excellent transmission from the UV into the near-infrared (NIR) and are available in diameters ranging from 1 to 5 mm and in eight lengths from 2 to 20 mm.
The fused-silica rod lenses are manufactured with precise diameters and are polished on the circumference and ground on both sides, the company said. When illuminated they act as a cylinder lens, focusing collimated light into a line.
Fused silica offers high transmission in the UV and through the NIR and low coefficient of thermal expansion for use in applications such as biomedical instrumentation, UV microscopy and laser scanning, among others, Edmund Optics said. Prices start at $59 and volume pricing is available.
