lens lense

  • 3) geometry A convex shape bounded by two circular arcs, joined at their endpoints, the corresponding concave shape being a lune.
  • 4) An object, usually made of glass, that focuses or defocuses the light that passes through it.
  • 5) by extension, figuratively A way of looking, literally or figuratively, at something.
  • 6) A device which focuses or defocuses electron beams.
  • 7) A transparent, biconvex structure in the eye of a vertebrate or cephalopod that is located between the iris and the vitreous humor and focuses light rays entering through the pupil to form an image on the retina.
  • 8) A thin piece of glass or plastic, as on a pair of sunglasses, that transmits light without refraction.
  • 9) A combination of two or more such pieces, sometimes with other optical devices such as prisms, used to form an image for viewing or photographing.
  • 10) A ground or molded piece of glass, plastic, or other transparent material with opposite surfaces either or both of which are curved, by means of which light rays are refracted so that they converge or diverge to form an image.
