converging lens

Definitions

Electronics

  • A lens which causes parallel rays of light passing through it to bend toward one another. Such lenses are thicker at the center than the edges. This contrasts with a diverging lens, which bends parallel rays of light passing through it away from one another. Also called convergent lens, convex lens, or positive lens.
