Properties and Spherical Aberration of Standard Spherical Lenses
Aspherical lens is produced by exactly cutting away some part of a spherical surface. A standard spherical lens has the undesirable property (called spherical aberration) of causing a stronger diffraction of light rays the further it is from the optical axis of the lens. The spherical aberration causes a loss of image sharpness.
Properties of Aspherical Lenses
Properly designed aspherical lenses fully compensate spherical aberrations. Aspherical lenses are effective in the elimination of not only spherical aberration, but also other forms of aberration generated by lenses. Aspherical lenses are also used to compensate for distortion aberration.
|Used in applications to reduce beam distortion|
|Other dimensions are available in small and mass production quantities|
|Various AR Coatings are available for all these lenses.|

Polymer film First Contact™ is a unique product designed for laser optics protection, preservation and cleaning. For all sorts of optical items it serves as a protection layer from damages during shipping, long term storage, environment changes, etc. and removes all dust and other contamination after the film is removed from the optical surface. It is absolutely safe for almost all types of optics and optical coatings.*
- Protects against scratching, abrasion, dirt, and water damage. Also protects against corrosion caused by water vapor, oxygen, and sulfur.
- Cleans the surface, removes particulates and organic contaminants.
- Leaves no residue.
- Leaves no hazardous waste.
- Safe to store for up to 4 years (period may be extended depending on storing conditions).
- Comes off in one piece.
- Does not lift metal from metal films.
- Safe with temperatures up to 200° C.
- Environmentally friendly
* Protective polymer cannot be used with optical components sensitive to acetate.
Price – 3 EUR per item (price includes coating service and polymer)
If you want to order protective coating please select "Optics Protection" in the catalog list.
Holding the sticker slowly peel the film starting from the edge. If necessary place the optic in its corresponding mount prior to removing the film.
