- If you look at the below link under 'Laser Sheet', https://www.edmundoptics.com/campaigns/cylinder-lens/

The equation is much easier for a single line generator. I am stuck at the point where I use a second lens. Say for the sheet, input beam dia is 5mm and working distance L is 100mm, I use 'x = (d/EFL) (L + EFL)' for the 1st lens, then at which distance from the 1st lens do I keep the 2nd lens and how do I choose the FL of the 2nd lens. And how to use 'x = (d/EFL) (L + EFL)' for the 2nd lens (especially about the L part).

- Relevant Equations
- x = (d/EFL) (L + EFL)

Would you be able to help me figure out the equation to be used at both lenses to get the final light sheet?
