Laser collimators

Single-element laser collimators are available with diameters ranging from 10 to 100 mm. The lenses can be used with laser wavelengths ranging from 350 nm to 15 µm. Relative apertures from 1/2 to 1/1 can be specified. Wavefront forming accuracy (from a point source on the axis) is 0.1 to 0.2 waves, with transmission ranging from 70% to 95%, depending on the aberration-correction techniques used.
