Complete selection of components that modify the state of polarization of optical radiation. Polarizing optics includes: brewster windows, polarization plane rotators, round or rectangular thin film laser polarizers that are coated for particular laser application. Cube polarizing beamsplitters, Glan-Taylor polarizing prisms, Wollaston and Rochon polarizing prisms are available. Wide selection of quartz retardation plates, including: zero order optically contacted and air-spaced wave plates, achromatic air-space wave plate, zero order dual wavelength wave plate, low order and multiple order wave plates.
|Thin Film Polarizers for Laser Applications (at 56°)||Brewster Windows|
|Separate s- and p-polarized components of particular wavelength. Due to their high damage threshold Thin Film Polarizers replace Glan laser polarizing prisms or cube polarizing beamsplitter in applications with high energy lasers.||Used in laser cavity to transmit 100% of p-polarized component without reflection losses and to introduce losses for s-polarized component. Total reflection of s-polarized component is up to 22 % for UVFS and up to 26% for N-BK7 at 1064 nm|
