It focuses light in only one dimension. Similar to a PCX Lens in profile, but is a portion of a cylinder instead of a sphere. Cylinder lenses can transform a point of light into a line image.
Note: For Rectangular Lenses, radius of curvature is parallel to first dimension.
A cylindrical lens can be used in a broad range industrial, research and OEM applications. Typically, they are used in spectroscopy, holography, laser scanning optical metrology, acousto-optic and laser diode applications.
