Where to Buy Ball Lenses

All lenses are lenses having the geometrical form of a ball (sphere), which may be rather small (→ microoptics). They can be used as beam collimators for optical fibers and for fiber-to-fiber coupling, for example.

ball lenses

Ball Lenses are commonly used to improve signal quality in fiber coupling applications, or for use in endoscopy or bar code scanning applications. Our ball lenses feature short back focal lengths to minimize the distance needed from the ball lens to the optical fiber. Edmund Optics offers a variety of ball lenses in a range of substrates for performance in the ultraviolet to the NIR. Half-ball lenses are also available to ease mounting or system integration.
