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 than calcite polarizers for incredible value.
- Out performs polarizing cube beamsplitters & dichroic sheet polarizers
- Extinction ratio better than 10,000:1
- Wide acceptance angle
- Less expensive than calcite polarizers
- Low wavefront distortion
- High transmission
Black Anodized Aluminum Mounting Ring
Each polarizer is mounted in a 12.7 or 25.4 mm diameter black anodized aluminum ring to simplify handling of these 0.5 mm thick components.
740 to 860 nm Polarcor Polarizer Transmission Broadband Antireflection Coatings
All Polarcor polarizers are broadband antireflection coated to increase the transmission of polarized light.
The Polarcor Advantage
Polarcor is a dichroic glass polarizer with an extinction ratio greater than 10,000:1 over a fairly broad wavelength range--greater than sheet polarizers or beamsplitter cubes. Performance characteristics such as extinction ratio, transmittance, and angular acceptance are comparable to Calcite polarizers at a much lower overall cost for great value. Compared to other simple sheet polarizers, transmission is relatively high, ranging from greater than 79% for the visible products to greater than 94% for the near infrared products.
