Optics and Optical Components

Optics and optical components alter the state of light through focusing, reflecting, filtering or polarizing. Optics are used in a wide range of functions, including to play CDs and in many laptop computer displays. Optics and optical components include optical filters, optical lenses, laser lenses, laser line mirrors, laser bean expanders, laser windows, laser filters, laser prisms, laser polarizers, laser crystals, laser optical assemblies, optical mirrors, or mirrors which are totally optimised for reflecting and transmitting lasers Optics and optical components are used in a wide range of applications including imaging, microscopy, life science, interferometry, music industry, testing and measurement.

  3. Imaging Lenses
    - 2 Suppliers 266 Products

    Imaging lenses are used to view objects in an image system to better focus or highlight the image. They work by highlighting certain features or characteristics and are used in a wide range of applications including like face and object recognition, barcode reading, imaging of documents, machine vision, as well as biometric security.

  4. Lasers
    - 2 Suppliers 51 Products

    Lasers differ from other sources of light in that it emits light coherently, that is it stays narrow and precise over long distances and can be focused on a small spot. This makes lasers ideal for huge range of uses where precision is required such as laser cutting and engraving, DNA sequencing and laser lighting.
