Achromatic lenses (glued lenses) are used to minimize or avoid chromatic aberration. Its achromatic design also helps to minimize spherical aberration.
Achromatic lenses are suitable for various applications such as fluorescence microscopy, image relay, detection, or spectroscopy.
The manufacturing process of an achromatic lens involves gluing two elements together or installing both elements in a single housing. Compared to a monolithic lens, an achromatic lens can form smaller light points.
