Product Family Description

  • Designed for 0° Angle of Incidence
  • Less Than 1.75% Reflectance Per Surface @ 400 - 700nm
  • VIS 0° and VIS-NIR Coated Achromats Also Available

TECHSPEC ® MgF2 Coated Achromatic Lenses consist of two optical components cemented together to form an achromatic doublet which is computer optimized to correct for on-axis spherical and chromatic aberrations. These lenses feature a single layer of MgF2 which provides less than 1.75% reflectivity from 400 – 700nm. TECHSPEC MgF2 Coated Achromatic Lenses are best for applications involving multi-color (white light) imaging due to their specific doublet lens pairing that enables them to correct the color separation inherent in glass. Having eliminated the problematic chromatic aberrations, achromatic doublet lenses become the most cost-efficient means for polychromatic illumination and imaging.
