Bi-convex lenses are manufactured with an identical convex surface on both sides of the lens.

  • Bi-convex lenses have positive focal lengths and form both real and virtual images.
  • Aberrations such as coma, distortion, and chromatic aberration almost exactly cancel out at unit conjugate ratios due to the symmetry. Aberrations will increase as conjugate ratios depart from unity.
  • Recommended for virtual imaging of real objects, and for positive conjugate ratios from approximately 0.2 to 5. Values are wavelength sensitive.
  • Antireflection coatings can be ordered as an option.
  • We also provide precision grade bi-convex lens with tighter manufacturing tolerances.
  • Bi-convex elements have a Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) ranging from 100 to 1,000 units.
