American Photonics: A Legacy of Optical Excellence Since 2001

American Photonics (APC), a family-owned and operated business, has been a beacon of innovation and quality in the optical solutions industry since 2001. Located in Sarasota, Florida, we take pride in our 100% Made in America ethos. With over 10,000 part numbers available for immediate delivery, our expertise shines in customizing lenses and optics as per client specifications, tackling unique and complex projects that demand precision and creativity.

The Need for the Right Lens

Selecting the perfect lens for your application is more than a choice—it's a necessity. Different lenses have different roles, and at American Photonics, we are well-versed in these diverse needs. Our range is vast, accommodating various applications from research and industrial use to creative projects.

Exploring Lens Types and Applications

Spherical Singlet Lenses:

  • Plano-Convex and Best Form Lenses: Ideal for focusing collimated beams or collimating point sources. Optimal for applications where spherical aberrations are less critical.
  • Bi-Convex Lenses: Best suited for relay imaging or focusing divergent beams, especially when the conjugate ratio ranges between 0.2X - 5X.
  • Plano-Concave and Bi-Concave Lenses: Perfect for diverging collimated beams or collimating convergent beams, used in applications requiring light dispersion.

Achromatic Lenses:

  • Cemented Achromatic Doublets/Triplets: Superb for broadband focusing and collimation, effectively correcting chromatic aberrations. Ideal for enhanced monochromatic performance.
  • Air-Spaced Doublets: Custom-made for high-power applications, offering superior broadband focusing and collimation.

Aspheric Lenses:

  • Specially designed for optimized on-axis performance, these lenses are perfect for laser diode collimation and fiber coupling. Aspheric lens pairs are also adept at relay imaging.
