Glan-Taylor polarizer is designed to transmit only extraordinary polarization of the beam, while ordinary polarization beam is deflected to the housing. Typical application of the polarizer is “cleaning” the polarization of a light source, or attenuation
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 is designed to have less reflection loss at the prism junction.
Because of cement it has higher transmission than Glan Taylor type due to reduced reflection losses at the hypotenuse interface but limited useful UV spectral range. Transmitted extraordinary beam is used. Side faces are black painted to absorb rejected o
Wollaston polarizer is designed to separate unpolarized light beam into two orthogonally polarized ordinary and extraordinary components which are symmetrically deflected from axis of initial propagation.
Rochon polarizer is made of two birefringent material prisms cemented together. Both ordinary and extraordinary beams propagate collinearly down the optic axis in the first prism under the ordinary refractive index. Upon entering the second prism the ordi
Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters split randomly polarized beams into two orthogonal,linearly,polarized components-S-polarized light is reflected at a 90deg.Angle while P-polarized light is transmitted.Each beamsplitter consists of a pair of precision high
True Zero Order Waveplate-Single Plate and True Zero Order Waveplate- Cemented .
The zero order waveplate is designed to give a retardance of zero full waves, plus the desired fraction. Zero order waveplate shows better performance than multiple order waveplates. It has broad bandwidth and a lower sensitivity to temperature and wavele
Low(multiple) order waveplate is designed to give a retardance of several full waves, plus the desired fraction. This result in a single, physically robust component with desired performance. However, even small changed in wavelength or temperature will r
Achromatic waveplate is made from two different substrate materials such as crystal quartz and magnesium fluoride. For the single material waveplates the working wavelength is very limited because of the dispersion of the material. While Achromatic Wavepl
Due to the rotation activity of natural quartz crystal, it also can be used as polarization rotators so that the plane of input linearly polarized beam will be rotated at special angle which is determined by the thickness of quartz crystal.
