Product Description

Ball Lens

A special form of a thick biconvex optical lens is a ball lens, usually having the geometrical form of a ball (sphere). They are manufactured from a single material, usually an optical glass with good transparency in the wavelength region of interest. A frequently used material is fused silica.


Another variant are half-ball lenses, which are obtained simply by cutting ball lenses in half.


Ball lenses are usually made with relatively small diameters of a few millimeters or sometimes even less than 1 mm (microlenses). Particularly for such small dimensions, they are easier to fabricate than lenses with traditional designs.

Applications of Ball Lenses
Ball lenses are used particularly as beam collimators for optical fibers (fiber collimators) and for fiber-to-fiber coupling. They are also suitable for miniature optics with applications like barcode scanning, as objective lenses in endoscopy and for optical sensors. There are also microscope objectives (particularly immersion objectives) which have a hyperhemisphere (e.g., somewhat more than a hemisphere) as the first lens.
