A cylindrical lens is a lens which focuses light into a line, instead of a point as a spherical lens would. Plano-concave cylindrical lenses are designed to expand light, it can be supplied in either diameter or rectangular shape for ease of mounting. Plano-cave cylindrical lenses are applied for laser line generation, anamorphic beam shaping and one-dimensional compression of images. 

Hangzhou Shalom EO provides the custom plano-concave cylindrical lenses upon customer's request.
