Optimized for use in collimated light with small fields of view,
Edmund Optics’ TechSpec spherical aberration-compensation plates feature a
precision BK7 substrate. The plates are designed to compensate and correct known
amounts of spherical aberration. They can be combined to induce the desired amount
of compensatory spherical aberration in a given system. Negative sign plates create
overcorrected spherical aberration, while positive plates result in undercorrected
spherical aberration. The devices are available in 12.5-, 25- and 50-mm diameters
in both positive and negative sign plates with aberrations of 0.25λ, 0.50λ and 1.00λ.
Spherical aberration plates applied to imaging systems will improve overall system
performance while decreasing the complexity of the design. They are in stock and
available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround.
