Cost Effective Optima Lenses for Collimating and Focusing Laser Diodes

Collimating and focusing a laser diode is perhaps the most critical prerequisite in any laser diode application. While the characteristics of a laser diode might be ideal for your application, the laser diode must be matched with the appropriate optics to create a useable beam. Typically, the laser diode is collimated with one lens and a second lens is used to focus the beam. However, many applications exist where a single lens is used to either focus or collimate the beam. In either case, most laser diodes require a collimating lens with a large numerical aperture (NA) to efficiently capture the widely divergent perpendicular axis.

Optima manufacturers the following laser diode lenses and laser diode optics:
Multiple Element Collimating and Focusing Lenses
Molded Glass Aspheric Lenses
Injection Molded Plastic Aspheric Lenses
Achromats, Doublets, Plano-convex, Plano-concave, etc....
