How Does It Work

The Fresnel lens is a compact lens made of a series of concentric rings of simple lenses. Each ring focuses light towards the centre of the rings. The result means the Fresnel lens can be made much thinner than comparable lenses but the design does reduce the focus or clarity of the image projected through it.

It was originally developed by French scientist Augustin-Jean Fresnel who studied light and optics in the 1800s.  Whilst image quality is reduced, light is refracted (bent) to concentrate the light into a relatively narrow beam. For this reason, the Fresnel lens was often used in the construction of lighthouses.

To achieve the same level of magnification a conventional convex glass lens would need to be much thicker and heavier.
