Product Family Description

TECHSPEC® Uncoated Double-Convex (DCX) Lenses, also referred to as bi-convex lenses, have two positive, symmetrical faces with equal radii on both sides. These lenses are generally recommended for finite imaging applications with a conjugate ratio (ratio between object distance and image distance) between 0.2 and 5. At a conjugate ratio of 1, aberrations such as spherical aberration, chromatic aberration, coma, and distortion are minimized or canceled due to the symmetric lens design. TECHSPEC® Uncoated Double-Convex Lenses resist the effects from various aberrations in a lens design that are ultimately seen in performance and affect modulation transfer function (MTF), spot size, telecentricity, depth of field (DOF), and others. These lenses are available in a variety of substrates and coating options for the visible and NIR spectra.
