    Specialty Lenses

    Specialty Lenses are Optical Lenses that are unique in design or purpose. Specialty Lenses are used in a range of applications for a wide variety of industries, including communications, R&D, industrial, or lab integration. Edmund Optics offers the world’s largest inventory of optical components, including unique Specialty Lenses.

    Edmund Optics’ Specialty Lenses include Compound Parabolic Concentrators (CPCs), Focus-Tunable Lenses, Laser Focusing Singlets, Microlens Arrays, or Multi-Lens Arrays. Compound Parabolic Concentrators (CPCs) are ideal for light collection applications. Focus-Tunable Lenses allow either manual or electric control over the lenses’ focal length. Focus-Tunable Lenses are ideal for use in labs, where it may be easier to use a single Optical Lens to test a range of focal lengths, rather than purchasing a large number of individual Optical Lenses. Laser Focusing Singlets are designed to yield a minimum spot size for 632.8nm light, or for focusing most visible diodes up to 670nm. Microlens Arrays are used for light homogenization applications. Multi-Lens arrays are ideal for use in illumination or projection systems.
