Confocal Microscopy Laser Scanning Lenses

By using a Special Optics Telecentric F-Theta Laser Scan lens in place of a conventional microscope objective, Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopes can provide an image area more than 100 times that of a standard microscope. Our Telecentric F-Theta Laser Scan lenses are optimized for Confocal Microscopy and are ideal for focusing the incoming laser beam to a spot on the microscope slide.

We design and construct countless specialty lenses for our customers everyday. Call, email or submit a custom lens request using our online form. We would be happy to help design something to fit your exact specifications.

Features
  • Diffraction-limited design
  • Precision Manufacture and Assembly
  • Confocal lenses as scanning microscope objectives for simultaneous X-Y scanning
