What are Spherical Lens?

Spherical Lens, also known as singlets, are optical lenses with curved surfaces that cause light rays to converge or diverge.



Types of Spherical Lens

There are two types of spherical lens, convex and concave lens.

converging lens is called a convex lens. It is thicker at the centre than at the edges. Convex lenses have several shapes and sizes based on their appearance and working principle. They have been divided into several types. These are the few types of convex lenses as discussed below:

1Plano-convex lenses

2Biconvex Lens

3Meniscus Lens(Concavo–Convex Lens)

A  concave lens. It is thinner at the centre than at the edges. Concave lens can be divided into the following:

1Plano-Concave Lens

2Biconcave Lens

3Convexo–Concave Lens



Application of Spherical Len

Spherical lens is widely used in medical optical imaging, laser field, scientific research, security monitoring, automobile industry, military equipment, aerospace and other high-tech fields.

1.  Imaging with array lenses, used in fields, such as monitoring, microscopy, etc.

2. The spherical and optical aberration is corrected by glued lens to achieve the ideal image quality.



How to Choose the Spherical Lens?

Conjugation ratio, lens material, lens shape, radius of curvature, transmittance, wavefront distortion, scattered light, and coating type are all characteristics that must be considered when selecting spherical lens.
