Caption: Light refraction with plano-convex lens. Computer illustration showing beams of light diverging as they pass through a plano-convex lens. As light passes through the lens it slows down and is refracted due to the greater density of the lens material. Due to the shape of the lens, the light beams are refracted away from the angle of incidence as they leave the lens, causing them to diverge. The more severe the shape, the more the beams diverge.
