Product Name Notes
Wollaston Polarizing Prisms A Wollaston prism splits a broadband input beam into two separately accessible beams with highly pure orthogonal linear polarizations. The prisms are fabricated from select-grade calcite prisms pairs, cemented together,...
Bereks Polarization Compensators Berek’s variable waveplates modify the polarization of collimated beams from any state to any other state with the flexibility, convenience, and precision previously found only in bulky and expensive Soleil-Babinet...
Multiple-Order Quartz Wave Plates Multiple-order quartz waveplates are an economical tool for controlling the polarization state of lasers or other narrowband light sources. The half waveplate is used to rotate the polarization direction, and...
Zero-Order Precision Polymer Wave Plates Newport's true zero-order wave plates consist of a birefringent polymer film cemented between two high-precision BK 7 windows, each with a high efficiency, broadband antireflection coating. Polymer wave plates offer...
Achromatic Zero-Order Wave Plates Our achromatic zero-order wave plates consist of a polymer film stack laminated between two high-precision AR coated N-BK7 windows and are designed to operate with a high degree of retardation...
General Purpose Sheet Polarizer Our general-purpose sheet polarizers are perfect for those in-between times when you need a polarizer with a large aperture and acceptance angle, but you don’t need the high extinction ratio...
Glan-Laser Calcite Polarizers Our Glan-Laser Calcite Polarizers are designed for demanding applications requiring extreme polarization purity and high resistance to laser damage. Glan-laser polarizers are air-spaced, select-grade calcite prism pairs with the prism...
Glan-Thompson Calcite Polarizers Our Glan-Thompson Calcite Polarizers provide high purity linear polarization for broadband sources or multiple laser wavelengths for lower power applications. Their 14°-16° acceptance angle allows them to be used in...
Precision Linear Polarizers Our precision linear polarizers are constructed by laminating a polymer polarizing film between two high-precision AR coated glass or fused silica windows. The standard 12.7, 25.4, and 50.8 mm outer...
Polarcor™ Linear Polarizers Polarcor™ linear polarizers offer high contrast, high transmission, low wavefront distortion and a wide acceptance angle. Polarcor polarizers outperform dichroic sheets, wire grid polarizers, and polarizing cubes at lower price...
High-Energy Nd:YAG Laser Thin Film Polarizers Superior high-energy polarizer performance is achieved through advanced coating design and meticulous production procedures. These optics have been developed for use in some of the most demanding lasers in the...
Broadband Polarization Rotators The broadband polarization rotators allows for specific polarization control anywhere along your optical path. Applications include ellipsometry, polarimetry, scattering measurements, or optical component testing. 10 arc min polarization rotation resolution...
Unmounted Precision Linear Polarizers The LPGF and LPNIR series linear polarizers are not mounted in a housing for a lower cost option. They are available in 400-700 nm, 750-850 nm and 1000-2000 nm wavelength...
Achromatic Zero-Order Quartz-MgF2Wave Plates These achromatic zero-order wave plates consist of two different birefringent crystals — crystalline quartz and magnesium fluoride (MgF2) — in an air-spaced design. Compared to zero-order quartz wave plates, achromatic...
Thin Film Polarizers For Ultrashort Pulses These thin film polarizers have been designed to provide superior performance in ultrafast Ti:Sapphire regenerative amplifiers. While pulse lengths are relatively long in these amplifiers, pulse dispersion is still a...
Zero-Order Quartz Wave Plates Zero-order wave plates are temperature insensitive phase retarders for moderate bandwidth applications. These zero-order wave plates are constructed of two airspaced quartz waveplates, enabling use with high-power diode lasers or...
