A cylindrical lens is a lens which focuses light into a line, instead of a point as a spherical lens would. Plano-convex cylindrical lenses are designed to focus light, it can be supplied in either diameter or rectangular shape for ease of mounting. Plano-convex cylindrical lenses are useful for laser line generation,anamorphic beam shaping and one-dimensional compression of images in laser scanners, spectroscopy, dye lasers, acousto-optics, optical processors and other similar applications.

Hangzhou Shalom EO provides custom plano-convex cylindrical lenses upon customer's request.
