large working distance of more than 300 mm

integrated top-light illumination

broad spectral range for RGB applications

From the Idea to the Finished Solution

Prototype challenges

Due to the limited space available, the actual dimensions of the
lens were tightly restricted. Using a smart combination of mechanical mounts and optical alignment the requirements could
be fulfilled and the working distance achieved with a precision of
less than 1 mm.

Resolution and contrast

Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) at a wavelength of 460 nm.
The resolution of the lens is very close to the diffraction limit even
in the corners of the sensor.

Longitudinal chromatic aberration

Longitudinal chromatic aberration in the visible spectral range. The lens is designed with an apochromatic correction. The offset of the focal planes for RGB-LEDs (typ. wave length 460/525/625 nm) is within 10 μm.
