The “2006 Optics and Optical Instruments
Catalog” from Edmund Optics details more than 8000 products, including new
items for UV and biophotonics applications. UV offerings range from simple lenses,
windows and mirrors to complex sensors, light sources and optomechanical assemblies.
The fall catalog describes new TechSpec optics for harsh environments, high-resolution
MVO large-format lenses for line- and area-scan cameras, and Reflx reflective microscope
objectives, which offer a long working distance, a high numerical aperture and an
ultrawide spectral band with no chromatic aberration. Application notes on topics
ranging from lens design to machine vision illumination are provided.
