Title: OPTICAL LENS WITH TOOTH STRUCTURE
Abstract:
An optical lens (100) is disclosed, which is adapted to transmit light from a light source (110). The optical lens (100) comprises a light-transmitting body (120) and a light-exiting surface (130) from which light is output from the lens (100). The light-exiting surface (130) is arranged on the body (120) and comprises a peripheral portion (131) and a central portion relative to an optical axis of the lens (100). The peripheral portion (131) is a convex portion. The central portion (131) comprises at least one tooth (140) that is formed by a main surface (141) and an edge surface (142), wherein the main surface (141) leans towards the optical axis. Further, the tooth (140) extends at least partly around the optical axis. The present disclosure provides an optical lens (100) capable of mitigating a relatively narrow intensity distribution of light emitted from the light source (110).
