    Achromatic Lenses

    Achromatic Lenses are used to minimize or eliminate chromatic aberration. The achromatic design also helps minimize spherical aberrations. Achromatic Lenses are ideal for a range of applications, including fluorescence microscopy, image relay, inspection, or spectroscopy. An Achromatic Lens, which is often designed by either cementing two elements together or mounting the two elements in a housing, creates smaller spot sizes than comparable singlet lenses.

    Edmund Optics offers a large variety of Achromatic Lenses. Multiple anti-reflection coating options for the Ultraviolet (UV), visible, or Infrared (IR) are available, including UV-VIS, MgF2, VIS 0°, VIS-NIR, NIR II, or SWIR. Additionally, Achromatic Lenses designed specifically for the Ultraviolet (UV) or Infrared (IR) are available, which offer superior performance when compared to a standard Achromatic Lens that has been coated for the same or comparable wavelength range. Aspherized Achromatic Lenses, which combine an Achromatic Lens’ color correction with an Asphere’s superior spherical aberration correction, are also available. Triplet Achromatic Lenses are offered for applications requiring 1:1 conjugate ratios, or high power magnification.
