One side of meniscus lens is convex, another side is concave. It can be a convergent lens or a divergent lens, which is decided together by refractive index, curvature and radius.
Positive meniscus (convex-concave) lenses are designed to minimize spherical aberration. When used in combination with another lens, a positive meniscus lens will shorten the focal length and increase the numerical aperture (NA) of the system without introducing significant spherical aberration. When used to focus a collimated beam, as shown in the diagram above, the convex side of the lens should face the source to minimze spherical aberration.
Negative meniscus lenses are designed to minimize spherical aberration. These N-BK7, UV fused silica, calcium fluoride, and zinc selenide lenses consist of a convex surface and a concave surface where the concave surface has the greater radius of curvature. In combination with another lens, a negative meniscus lens will decrease the NA of the system. A negative meniscus lens is a common element in beam expanding applications.
