Edmund Optics Inc. has announced an expanded line of f-Theta telecentric scanning lenses that ensure a linear relationship between the input scan angle and the focal position on a flat plane. The 355-nm fused silica lenses have a short focal length, providing users with a small spot size to improve system resolution. The company says that fused silica provides better optical transmission than N-BK7 glass, especially in the UV and near-UV wavelengths. Applications include laser marking, 3-D prototyping, and semiconductor and solar panel processing.
