Features

Mounting, Aligning and Focusing Lenses Fast and Easy

A-Line™ series of self-aligning mounts are designed to make mounting, aligning and focusing lens groups fast and easy. How? The front of each lens mount has a special 6 mm alignment hole, which can be used with LH-GR Series Guide Rods such that several A-Line lens holders can be mounted together in a self-aligned row. This overview video demonstrates the easy and fast aligning process using the A-Line lens mounts.

Space Saving Design

Several A-Line self aligning optic mounts can be grouped on the same guide rod to save space. Shown are the LH-1DB with UPA-CFC fiber adapter, the LH-RMS with microscope objective and the LH-1A with lens.

Increased Stiffness for Reduced Vibration

A-Line™ lens holders are constrained both by the post/post holder as well as by the A-Line guide rod creating a "strong-box" structure that is significantly stiffer and less susceptible to vibration than individually post-mounted lenses. Shown on the right is A-line lens mounts and rods used together with TSP Series Miniature Optical Mounting Post and MSPH Series Miniature Slotted-Base Optical Post Holders.

Mounts for a Wide Variety of Lens Sizes

A-Line™ lens mounts hold standard spherical lenses in sizes from Ø0.5 in. (12.7 mm) thru Ø3.0 in. (76.2 mm) as well as thin Ø1 in. and Ø30 mm lenses.

Thin-Edge Design and Large Clear Aperture

All of these A-Line family lens mounts have a thin-edge design and a large clear aperture. They are threaded at the base for optical post mounting and feature a guide-rod alignment hole for fast alignment.

Use with Newport Lens Tubes

A-Line Series fixed lens mounts are compatible with Newport's LT Lens Tubes, no adaptors needed. For example, one can use LH-1A together with LT10-10 and LH-2A with LT20-20.

Versatile A-Line Mounts and Adaptors

Besides lens mounts, A-Line family of mounts also include all kinds of optic mounts, key rods and adaptors.

A-Line family of mounts can be used in many different ways to build your optical beam path easily and fast. For example, one can below opto-mechanical parts to build a vertical beam path shown on the left using A-Line components and adaptors:

World's Fastest Michelson Interferometer

A-Line components provide the most efficient and convenient way to put optical systems together. Watch this video to see how easily and quickly one can put together a simple Michelson interferometer!
