5 Tips
for Designing with
Off-the-Shelf
Optics
Using off-the-shelf optics in your next design
project comes with many advantages.
If budget or time restrictions eliminate the possibility of utilizing custom
optics in your application, stock optics are readily available and easily implemented to fit your design requirements. Here are some quick tips to help
make designing with off-the-shelf optics easy!
1
SIMPLIFY
Start on paper with a paraxial design and break it into subsystems of
finite and infinite conjugate optical groups. Determine the focal lengths you
want for each group before trying to optimize in a code such as Zemax,
Code V®, or another ray tracing software of your choice. Once you have the
focal lengths required, you can start using paraxial equations to help choose
the off-the-shelf lenses that provide the required focal lengths. Your preferred
ray tracing code should have a selection of off-the-shelf lenses built into it
(Figure 1) that you can use to model the selected lenses and optimize your
spacing. If not, the lenses can typically be input into the software with the
information provided by the supplier. All EO TECHSPEC® components are
available in most design codes and Zemax files are available on our website
at www.edmundoptics.com/zemax
2
GO MONOCHROMATIC
If at all possible, use a monochromatic source such as an LED or
Laser or use an optical filter to make your system monochromatic. Using
a monochromatic or narrow band light will greatly reduce the complexity of the design. As a rough guideline, reducing the source waveband to
less than 50nm will generally make using singlets possible in your design.
Chromatic aberrations cause difficulty when composing a design, so your
options will be simplified if a broadband light source is not required.
3
UTILIZE OFF-THE-SHELF subsystems
By using off-the-shelf components such as achromatic doublets, microscope objectives, machine vision lenses, multi-element relays, or other
subsystems, you can often achieve your application’s exact correction requirements for factors such as color, field angles, and large apertures. In
many cases, these subsystems can even be modeled in your code if the prescriptions are provided by the supplier (Figure 2). Even if the prescription is
not available, a paraxial surface can be used to approximate the subsystem.
4 CONSIDER MOUNTING OPTIONS
Whether prototyping or trying to save the time and expense associated with purchasing custom housings, consider off-the-shelf mounting
options. For example, the TECHSPEC® Optical Cage System allows you to
easily assemble your optical components and provide plenty of freedom
for making spacing adjustments. Most off-the-shelf cage systems allow for
mounting common optical component sizes, as well as ways for mounting
microscope objectives, C-mount camera lenses, and other subcomponents.
5 USE COMPONENTS where they work
Off-the-shelf lenses such as Plano-Convex (PCX), Plano-Concave
(PCV), Double-Convex (DCX), Double-Concave (DCV), and Achromats are
optimized for small fields and small apertures. These components work
best when integrated into systems that do not have very steep ray angles.
For example, when designing a high magnification relay, use a complex
multi-element subsystem for the high numerical aperture side of the relay
and an achromat for the low numerical aperture side. For instance, a 15X
system (Figure 3) consisting of a 20X infinite conjugate objective on the
object side and a 150mm focal length achromatic lens on the image side,
will provide a very well-corrected system.

development & Prototyping
When developing a product, being able to quickly and easily
iterate your prototypes is critical.
Edmund Optics® makes prototyping easy by simplifying and
expediting the pathway to production. For stock solutions, we
ship same-day from our globally renowned world’s largest inventory of optical components. Beyond our immediately available
27,600 stock optics, quick “modified stock” customizations are
available in just 2-3 weeks. Finally, if we can’t find a solution offthe-shelf, our engineers can develop a custom solution to meet
your unique needs.
From design to prototype to volume production – we’ll recommend the best solution to create the optics you need while maintaining the desired budget.

scribe and break process. For thicker optics, our expert team may use precision saw cuts to create the desired geometry. A linear cut to size is not limited to only flat optics; the process can also be applied to optics with curved
surfaces. For instance, a PCX lens can be modified from having a circular
diameter to having a square outer edge.

Edge Blackening
Is stray light interfering with your system’s performance? Stray light is energy
outside of the clear aperture of an optical system that scatters off of the edges of an optical or mechanical component and reaches the sensor in the form
of noise. Because stray light contributes noise rather than signal, stray light is
a common limiting factor in overall performance of multi-element systems. To
minimize stray light, we can edge blacken an optic using an RoHS compliant,
solvent-resistant ink and improve overall light throughput.

Sphere to Asphere
A single aspheric lens can often outperform several spherical elements, particularly in fast optical systems (low f/#). Edmund Optics® is pleased to offer
this service to convert our spherical singlets to customized aspheric lenses by
modifying one of our over 150 different stock PCX lens designs. Whether you
have an aspheric lens already designed or only a preliminary setup, our engineers will work with you to help specify the right asphere for your application.
Application Examples
• Reduce lead time and cost by modifying a stock PCX lens rather than submitting a fully custom request
• Simplify imaging system prototyping by only producing the number of aspheres that you require

Customer success: Prototyping Solution
Every application has unique requirements. A customer found that one of our stock lenses met the performance requirements for an ultra-high temperature application, but the lens needed to fit within a specialized mount. We quickly made
the required dimensional modifications and delivered a product that fit into the production mounting solution.
Using S-, c-, and T-mount components and the TECHSPEC® optical cage system
Selecting the right mounting component is critical when trying to maximize the performance of an optical system. Edmund Optics® offers fixed, adjustable,
and kinematic mounts for a range of optical components including lenses, filters, mirrors, and prisms. Our modular S-, C-, and T-mount components can
easily integrate with TECHSPEC® Optical Cage System components for added functionality, such as for minimizing stray light or for incorporating light
sources, cameras, or detectors. Figures 1 - 4 demonstrate a few examples of how to use C-mount components within cage system setups.

C-mount Components
Figure 2: 30mm Inner Diameter Cage Plate with
a C-mount Lens Mount
Figure 3: Folded Path Prototype Set-up with
Cage Component Parts
Figure 4: OEM Imaging Assembly Prototype
with Cage System Components
Our large selection of S-, C-, and T-mounting components and accessories are cross compatible for easy
system integration and prototyping. Each mount utilizes a retainer ring to evenly distribute pressure on
the secured optic’s circumference, removing unneeded
strain and the risk of damage. Many of the mounts are
designed to hold single or multi-element optics.
Having issues with stray light? C-mount extension
tubes are simple solutions for minimizing stray
light and for improving system performance. Any
C-mount tube or C-mount lens mount with an outer
diameter of 30mm can be secured within a 30mm
inner diameter cage plate.
Designed for modularity and flexibility, optical
cage systems are high precision alternatives to
complex optical alignment systems. Constructed
of rods and plates, cage systems allow the user to
continuously modify the system’s design by adding
additional components, such as optical mounts and
angular brackets.
Using TECHSPEC® Optical Cage System components, Figure 4 shows a working prototype of an
imaging-based inspection system. Also shown is the
final OEM production unit.

5 INTERRELATED SURFACE terms for Specifying Lenses
Surface Sag
• The height (or depth) of a convex or concave lens surface is referred to as the sagitta,
or simply sag, of that surface.
• As the diameter of the lens increases, the sagitta increases; a change in diameter affects the sagitta more rapidly than a comparable change in surface power.
• Sag Calculator: www.edmundoptics.com/sag

Radius
• A rotationally symmetric spherical lens surface is a section of a sphere and has a uniform
radius of curvature across its surface. This radius is its theoretical or design shape.
• In manufacturing, the radius of the component will differ slightly than its design shape, so a best-fit sphere to a surface or wavefront is obtained by comparing to a theoretical surface.
• For testing purposes, the desired theoretical surface may be represented by a test
plate, interferometric reference surface, or other measuring device of sufficient
accuracy. Reference ISO 10110-5 for more detail.
Power
• Power or Radius Error is the deviation from the design shape of the surface. These differences are equal changes in the radius of curvature throughout the surface.
• Test plates can be used to measure the sag difference between the theoretical surface
radius and the part under test using interferometry.
• Every fringe or change from light to dark ring is a sag difference of a ½
wavelength of the light used to see the interference.
fringes = waves of power
2
Irregularity
• Irregularity is the remaining form error when constant radius error (power) is
removed from the measured surface.
• This error can be expressed as peak-to-valley (PV). The maximum distance minus
the minimum distance between the residual error of the best fit sphere and the surface
or wavefront.
Surface Flatness
• A type of surface accuracy specification that measures the deviation of a flat surface such as that of a mirror, window, prism, or plano-lens.
• This deviation can be measured using an optical flat. When the flat surface of the test
optic is placed against the optical flat, fringes appear whose shape dictates the surface
flatness of the optic under inspection.
