Ross Optical Industries Datasheets for Calcite Polarizers
Calcite polarizers are crystals used to separate unpolarized light into two separate plane polarized beams.

|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...|
