Polarization rotators offer 45deg or 90deg rotation at a number of common laser wavelengths, the optical axis in a polarization rotator is perpendicular to the polished face of the optic.
The Glan Thompson polarizer is made of two calcite prisms or a-BBO prisms cemented together. Two types of Glan Thompsons are available. One is the standard form and the other...
The optical depolarizer is a passive optical component which can transform the input polarized or partially polarized light into unpolarized light (depolarization). Our design uses the Lyot depolarizer principle.
The Rochon polarizer is one of the earliest designs, which is made of two birefringent material prisms cemented together. Both ordinary and extraordinary beams propagate collinearly down the optic axis...
The Wollaston polarizer is made of two birefringent material prisms that are cemented together. The deviations of the ordinary and extraordinary beams are nearly symmetrical about the input beam axis,...
