Rod Lens

Shanghai Optics’ Rod lenses are polished on the circumference and ground on both ends. They act as a cylinder lens, focusing collimated light into a line. Our fused Silica Rod Lens offers high transmission in the UV and through the NIR as well as a low coefficient of thermal expansion, 0.55 x 10E6 per °C.
