Plano-Concave Lenses

Plano Concave LensConcave lenses convert incoming parallel rays in diverging ray bundles that seem to originate from a single point in the object space – the so called imaginary focal point. Like plano-convex lenses these lenses minimize aberrations for absolute conjugate ratios more than 5 or less than 1/5. For this, plano-convex lenses should be placed with parallel beam entering the curved side of the lens. However such an orientation of a lens may be disadvantageous and even dangerous when a plano-concave lens is used to diverge a high power pulsed laser beam. A rest-reflexion from the curved surface will produce a real secondary focus that can damage optical elements preceding the concave lens or even causing a laser break-down at this point. By high power applications the concave surfaces should be oriented in such a way that a secondary focus is avoided.
