UV telecentric optics

Since the diffraction limit allows higher resolution at shorter wavelengths (see Fig. 36), UV optics can reach superior results compared to standard lenses and can efficiently operate with pixels as small as 1.75 µm. For example, the Opto Engineering® TCUV series telecentric lenses operate in the near UV range and deliver extremely high resolution for very demanding measurement applications.

UV Telecentric optics performance
The graph shows the limit performances (diffraction limit) of two lenses operating at working F/# 8. The standard lens operates at 587 nm (green light) while the UV lens operates at 365 nm.
