Product Name Notes
Glan Laser prism polarizer is made of two same birefringent material prisms that are assembled with an air space. The polarizer is a modification of the Glan Taylor type and...
Glan Taylor prism polarizer is made of two same birefringent material prisms that are assembled with an air space. Its length to aperture ratio which is less than 1.0 makes...
High Transmission Glan Laser Polarizers is a special type of Glan Laser Polarizers. The incidence angle is Brewster cut which can greatly improve the transmission up to 98% in a...
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 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,...
