Product Name Notes
Wollaston / Rochon Prism Polarizing Beam Splitters Wollaston Type Wollaston prism polarizing beam splitters consist of two equal angle calcite prisms optically coupled with optic axis orthogonally crossed to the direction of propagation. The beam separation of...
Glan-Thompson Polarizers Glan-Thompson cemented prism polarizers of calcite give the largest aperture field angle product of all calcite polarizer designs and the lowest transmission losses. The cemented interface, however, prevents their use...
Glan-Taylor Calcite Air Spaced Polarizers The Glan-Taylor polarizer produces a high extinction ratio polarizer with low reflection losses and a high power handling capability. It is therefore particularly useful for polarizing laser light, with the...
Glan-Taylor Polarizer With Brewster Angled Faces This special version of the Glan-Taylor polarizer is cut such that the P-polarization (extra-ordinary ray) intersects all four optical faces at Brewster's angle, thus ensuring a minimal insertion loss over...
Glan-Taylor Polarizing Beam Combiner This special version of the Glan-Taylor polarizer is cut such that the rejected S-polarized light exits in a direction parallel to the side exit face normal. More importantly, if the...
