Types of concave lens

A lens that is thin in the middle and thick at the edges is called a concave lens. The most common form of a concave lens has both surfaces depressed inward in the middle. Three types of concave lenses are listed and then shown in the figure below.

3 Types of concave lens class 10

The three types of concave lenses are Double Concave, Plano-Concave, and Convexo-Concave.

Different types of concave lens - Double Concave, Plano Concave, and Convexo Concave.

Read our notes on Spherical Lens class 10

Double Concave Lens – When both the surfaces of a concave lens are concave (depressed inward) then the lens is called a Double Concave lens.

Plano-Concave Lens – When one surface of a concave lens is plane and the other surface is concave then the lens is called a Plano-concave lens.

Convexo-Concave Lens – When one surface of a concave lens is convex and the other surface is concave then the lens is called a Convexo-Concave lens.
