Correction of spherical aberration by using an asphereCorrection of spherical aberration by using an asphereAspheres have much better imaging properties than spherical lenses thanks to the surface geometry that deviates from a sphere. The main benefit is the ability to correct spherical aberrations. The total number of optical elements in an optical system can be reduced by using an aspheric lens. This enables a significantly more compact and efficient setup than is the case for a comparable system with spherical lenses.

You can find out all about aspheres and their benefits in our “Utilizing Aspheres” optics poster. We would be more than happy to send you a free copy.

asphericon will manufacture a customized aspheric solution for your application. Choose an individual Custom solution or use the innovative diversity of our stocked aspheric lens from the StockOptics product line.
