Magnetic Lens

Circular electro-magnets capable of projecting a precise circular magnetic field in a specified region.

The field acts like an optical lens, having the same attributes of: focal length, angle of divergence and errors: spherical aberration, chromatic aberration.

They are used to focus and steer electrons in an Electron Microscope.
