Ross Optical Industries Datasheets for Calcite Polarizers

Calcite polarizers are crystals used to separate unpolarized light into two separate plane polarized beams.

Product Name Notes
A Glan-Taylor polarizer produces linearly polarized light. It’s made of a pair of right angle prisms which are separated on their hypotenuses with an air gap. The optical axes of...
A Rochon polarizer separates incident beams into ordinary and extraordinary like some other polarizers; however the p-polarization is transmitted straight through while the s-polarization is transmitted with a deviation angle.
A Wollaston polarizer has wider field of view than other birefringent polarizers. The two prisms are cemented together. Both ordinary and extraordinary beams transmit through the prism, however, at a...
This polarizer is a variation of the Glan-Taylor polarizer with a steep angle for the cut in the prism, which reduces reflection loss at the expense of decreased field of...
This type of polarizer is made of two cemented right angle prisms. The s-polarized extraordinary beam is transmitted while the ordinary beam is reflected. The prisms provide larger field of...
