Lenses and Optical Polymers

Optical lenses are optical components designed to focus or diverge light. Optical lenses, which may consist of a single or multiple elements, are used in a wide variety of applications from microscopy to laser processing.

A lens is a transmissive optical device that affects the focus of a light beam through refraction. A simple lens consists of a single piece of material, while a compound lens consists of several simple lenses, usually along a common axis. Lenses are made from transparent materials such as glass, ground and polished to a desired shape. A lens can focus light to form an image, unlike a prism, which refracts light without focusing.

Syntec Optics sells a variety of lenses and other optical hardware, with aspheric lenses, asymmetric builds, and other designs. Scaling the size and shape of materials is one part of providing versatile and high-quality products to the optical polymer market.
