Plano-convex axicons are conical lenses which are used for variety of applications. When followed by a conventional spherical lens, axicons can focus laser light to a ring shape with annular focus. This feature can be used in hole drilling, microscopy and medical applications. Another interesting feature of axicons is a possibility to transform Gaussian beam into non-diffractive Bessel beam in the near field. Bessel beams can be used in atom or molecule guiding applications.
Altechna offers two types of plano-convex axicons: regular and precision. Regular axicons will create annularly shaped beam whereas precision axicons will also transform Gaussian beam into a Bessel beam. You can choose accordingly, depending to your specific application.
