Laser Polarizers

  • 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. The polarizer with two escape windows allow the rejected beam to escape out of the polarizer, which makes it more desirable for high energy lasers. The surface quality of these faces is relatively poor as compared to that of entrance and exit faces. No scratch dig surface quality specifications are assigned to these faces.
  • Glan Taylor polarizer is made of two birefringent prisms that are assembled with an aire space. The polarizer with no side escape windows is suitable for low to medium power application where the side rejected beams are not required. Hangzhou Shalom EO offers the high quality Glan Taylor prisms and polarizers, the stocked modules are available for your selection in fast delivery and low cost.
  • Glan Thompson Polarizer Beamsplitter Cube is made of two calcite prisms cemented together. It have been arranged to permit ther output of the s-polarized beam at 45 ° from the straight through p-polarized beam. They provide high polarization purity and high transmission in the two emerging beams. These are useful if it is required to utilize both linear polarization states. They are mounted in a rectangular metal cell and surrounded with an absorbing compound.
  • 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, so that the Wollaston polarizing beam splitter has approximately twice the deviation of the Rochon. The separation angle exhibits chromatic dispersion, as shown in the blow. Any separation angle can be designed upon the requirement  
  • 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 in the first prism under the ordinary refractive index. Upon entering the second prism the ordinary beam experiences the same refractive index and continues undeviated. The extra-ordinary beam, however, now has a lower refractive index and is refracted at the interface. The angle of refraction is further increased at the birefringent material/air exit surface. Any separation angle can be designed for specific wavelength upon the requirement.
  • Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters or PBS cubes 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 tolerance right angle prisms cemented together with a dielectric coating on the hypotenuse of one of prisms.
  • 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. Hangzhou Shalom EO offers the high quality polariztion rotators upon the customer's requirements.
  • Plane polarized beam is not welcomed in some circumstances such as reflecting spectrometer. A depolarizer will change the plane polarization into a mix of polarization states by scrambling up the polarization, the result is to change plane polarized beam into pseudo-depolarized beam and produce depolarization. Depolarizer is widely used in polarization sensitive instrument.
