PerfectLens ™

Aspheric Lenns

The PerfectLens™ Platform

Archer OpTx molded lenses are produced using the PerfectLens™ technology platform. This proprietary technology produces high-yield long-life molds, which are free of the high-frequency surface defects commonly found on many molded lenses due to single-point diamond turning of the molds. These high-frequency defects do not typically show up on interferograms, but can produce troublesome diffraction and scatter effects, particularly noticeable in visible light applications.

Technology

PerfectLens™ mold technology supports a wide range of optical glass, providing the lens designer with the freedom to select the glass that is best suited to the application.

The PerfectLens™ process for ultra-precision glass molding enables extremely tight tolerancing with high temperature/low CTE RoHS compliant glass. The benefits to you are: unmatched optical performance, reduced labor cost for incoming inspection and production, and a more consistent final product.

Catalog lenses may be edged to smaller diameters, squared, sliced, or mounted in holders.

Custom Molded Aspheric Lenses

In addition to our catalog of molded aspheric lenses, Archer OpTx has the capability to fabricate custom molded aspheric lenses to meet specific customer requirements.

PerfectLens™ custom aspherical and acylindrical optics can be manufactured using any one of 40 standard Ohara RoHS compliant glasses. Additional glass types may be available depending on requested parameters. PerfectLens™ precision molded aspheres are the ideal solution when medium to large volumes of the same lens are needed to support your product, modest NRE charges are acceptable, and the glass type selected has been qualified for molding. Our team of experts is happy to provide a complete optical design or simply some optical design assistance to maximize the performance of your custom applications.

Custom Specifications

Custom PerfectLens™ aspheric optics can be molded from 3 mm to 60 mm in diameter. Typical tolerances are:

Diameter: +0, -0.025 mm
< 0.005um PV Surface Irregularity
< 1% focal length deviation
< 200mm CT
Surface Finish: 40/20 scratch/dig
Centration: <3 arcmin
or per customer requirement
